Does surface type affect the force of friction?
Surface types can affect the force of friction because as the surface gets rough and rougher it has more friction and smooth surface has less friction. if we compare the affect of friction force on a ice and road. Road is much more rough than the ice chunk and if we slide a ice hockey puck on each of the surfaces, we get that smoother surfaces has less friction.
The type of surface on which the object is sitting affects the coefficient of friction. Mass does not affect the coefficient of friction; it affects the the amount of friction on a given object. The coefficient of friction, µ, is found by dividing the force of friction by the normal force (µ = Ff ÷ FN).
Friction depends on the surface that the object is going against. If an applied force is used to push a box on a ground, the friction is the surface of the ground, may the ground be rough or smooth, there is a force that goes against the applied force. Air friction is also a type of friction that many physics question does not account for, because it is a virtually small force.
YES. Kinetic energy is the energy a body possesses because of it is in motion. Because it exists between an object and the surface over which it moves. Actually, NO. Friction is a force. In mechanical systems it is equal to the product of the coefficient of friction (mostly determined by material type and surface finish/roughness) and the force normal to the surface interface. A friction force can exist in the absence of motion (static…
friction is a type of force of two surfaces in contact. force is an action that causes a body of mass to accelerate. Friction is a force. However, there are other types of forces as well. Friction is a force that comes out due to initial force application. It is a resistant force. Friction is a force that is created whenever two surfaces move or try to move across each other. Friction always opposes the…
To amplify means to intensify or increase something. Friction is a type of force. Consider using a rolling object. The more the speed of the object increases so does the friction. The friction attempts to slow down the object because of gravity, thus increasing frictional force. A rough surface beneath a rolling object as opposed to a smooth surface can also do the same due to air pockets in holes in the surface.
