The static frictional coefficent tends to be bigger than the kinetic friction coefficient. This is because
there are more forces at work to keep the box still than there is to move the box. Table one in part A
matches up with this theory, but table 2 does not. I think this is because when I used the website to get
data, I might have had the heavier weight on instead of the lighter one.
They did vary with normal force. The kinetic and static friction depend on what variables the surface
they are on/ made up of such as wood, felt, or aluminum.
