Thanks for the feedback!
If friction vanishes suddenly then, . Movement on the ground will be impossible . writing,typing, etc will be also not possible. . wind will uproot the tree and plants… . a body won't be able to change its direction and state of motion until an external force is applied on it. .
Yes, because with out friction everything and/or every one would be slipping on the ground.
Life wouldn't be without cells. Cells are living and make up living organisms.
it would stink. We would technically not be able to walk or drive or run ect.. If you did manage to get moving you wouldn't be able to stop until you hit something. Pretty mu…ch we'd all need hover crafts to get around.
Because this is just for your homework, I will not elaborate, and some may be wrong. 1. You would not be able to walk well. 2. You would not be able to play anything. 3.… You would not be able to use the computer. 4. Dancing is out of the question. 5. It would be very difficult to hold and handle things. 6.You will not be able to burn mathematics
Suppose friction vanished now: 1.plants (farmers are growing) and trees near your house will blow away due to winds. 2. ocean water flows into coastal areas without stopp…ing near the shore, killing millions. 3.cell phone towers and current poles will blow away, so no power. 4. But first of all, hydro-electric power stations don't work (Think Why?) 5. You can't eat your food, you can't take them with your hand or with spoon! 6. Your respiratory system will not work (That should have been mentioned first) 7.all the systems in our body including excretory system will not work. (Kidneys can't function and villi can't send things out how much ever they vibrate ) 8. Most importantly, how do you think blood will flow in your body, if friction disappears? 9.You will be literally in space which has gravity (objects) like buildings flowing in air, colliding withe each other) 10.finally, if you are alive, you can't even talk with others (your mouth can't produce sound) Source(s): I mentioned all 10 which came to my mind, excuse for my order of mentioning.
We would not be able to walk and nothing would be able to stay still Hope I could help
We would not be able to make our own fire, because of this we couldn't cook or eat properly. the only way we could get fire is by lighting strikes.
Absolutely nothing could make any purposeful movement and nothing would stay-put if any force were applied to it.
If friction suddenly vanished, the world would be difficult tonavigate: Objects in motion would remain in motion. Using anythingwith wheels would be impossible. Sanding things… would beimpossible. Shoes would not wear down. Blades would never get dull.Fires couldn't be started by rubbing sticks together. Walking wouldbe impossible Everything would fall into depression points.Navigation would have to be done using wind or gravity. Scrapeswould not occur from falling.
we would suddenly fall from our chairs and slip off our feet. we would no longer be able to grip things and it would be extremely hard to move your mouse to click to recommend… me as a good contributor. but you could try.
it would burn up.
Any life that formed in a universe that somehow did not include friction would be so thoroughly different from organisms as we know them that (especially since you havent ment…ioned the mechanism by which friction was... removed?) I doubt any of us could imagine it.
if friction vanishes from our lives then -: 1. we could not walk, we would keep slipping 2. In a frictionless world, all machines will become 100% efficient. 3. the …cars wouldn 't stop, so there would be a lot of accidents 4. There would be no sound because the waves have to be 'tranferred ' but with no friction they cannot transfer! 5. Writing would be impossible, the pencil would slip off the page. 6. Knives would be much less effective 7. Matches wouldn 't work 8. Phone audio quality would be a lot better, as friction would not have any effect on telephone cables. 9. The Olympics would be pointless. All events would be reduced to a test of strength pushing away from the start. 10. In order to move from one place to another, you would have to make something else move in the opposite direction.
Friction doesn't affect gravity. No matter how high or low the friction the gravity would always be the same on any planets. It is however, higher the gravity or force acting …on the surface of friction would result to increasing of friction force.
The oceans are very important to the planet because they're the primary water source. Water is necessary for life and every living things need enough water to survive long eno…ugh. There are other water bodies like lakes and rivers but the ocean is the biggest thing because they help retain life and keep the planet habitable enough. Many fishes and sea animals live in the ocean, so they're home to these animals, including fishes. They also help regulate the world's temperatures. Solar radiations can be dangerous as it can heat the planet up but the oceans absorb most of the solar radiation, so the planet won't keep on heating up. The other thing is about the carbon cycle and the greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide and other air pollutions are greenhouse gases, which means they pollute the air and trap some heat. The carbon sinks are objects that absorb carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and replace with oxygen, so we can say that they're objects that help clean the air. A plant is a carbon sink because it absorbs carbon dioxide and produces oxygen. However, just one plant won't do much of absorbing carbon dioxide and they're quite inefficient, so it takes a lot of them to absorb more carbon dioxide. The ocean is a carbon sink and acts like plants. The ocean is a much better carbon sink that plants. The oceans can absorb vast tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases replace with oxygen. They do much more than plants and they're very efficient, which is more efficient than plants. When the ocean replace the carbon dioxide with oxygen, then the oxygen is then distributed to the land, which is for people, animals and other living organisms to survive. The ocean is a more dominant carbon sink than plants, so the ocean can be a "very dominant carbon vacuum" or "giant carbon vacuum", because it looks that they vacuum vast amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. To get to the question point about the ocean vanishing. If the oceans suddenly vanished, there would be a terrible and catastrophic effect. The first thing that would happen is that people will be in a mass panic for water, especially if they might get thirsty and dehydrate to death. The next thing that may happen if that fish and sea animals will die because the ocean's disappearance means no more home for them. The boats that are floating on the oceans will sink down to the barren seabed. The planet will become uninhabitable because the ocean is the primary water source for life. Plants, animals, and other living organisms will start to hydrate to death and die out due to lack of water. If the plants die, then animals will also starve to death because there'll be no more food. In the food chain, the primary consumers or herbivores will firstly die out, and then the secondary consumer will also die out, and the devastation will keep going up the food chain and so on and so forth. However, the food chain devastation may happen abruptly because animals also need water to survive, so they'll also die out together with the plants. The solar radiation will begin to bombard and strike the planet more and heat up more because there'll be no more oceans to absorb these nasty solar radiations. There'll only be very little oxygen left and too much carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere because there'll be no more oceans to vastly absorb these greenhouse gases. There's still plants to absorb greenhouse gases, which is another carbon sink, but there are some tragic sides with the plants. This is a scary greenhouse catastrophe. Without oceans, plants will also die out, which removes another carbon sink. Without oceans to vastly absorb carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, the carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases will begin to overwhelm the planet, which can heat up the planet more. The planet might look like Venus and temperatures might reach hundreds of degrees, which is too hot to survive and we may burn to death by the very intense heat. The planet would become an uninhabitable and barren wasteland.
