Kinetic Frictional Forces Once a force is applied to an object that exceeds F s max , the object begins to move, and static frictional forces no longer apply. The moving object does still experience a frictional force, but of a different nature. We call this force the kinetic frictional force. The kinetic frictional force always counteracts the motion of the object, and

Unformatted text preview: is independent of speed. No matter the speed of the object (as long as v≤ 0 ) it experiences the same frictional force. Also, for the same reasons as explained with static friction, the kinetic frictional force is proportional to the normal force: F k = μ k F N...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
