Discussion of Results:The main objective of this lab was to measure the coefficients of static and kinetic friction between a wooden block and a wooden plane. In this laboratory we investigated the kinetic and static friction forces acting on a wood block and on other materials. Results According to our hypothesis of Ff = Fn we were expecting a linear relationship between the force of friction and the normal force. This is what we obtained from both graphs.
