Friction force works against the motion of the object. In other words friction force

has the opponent direction of the velocity of the object.

Can you describe how the direction of the force of kinetic friction is related to the direction of an object's motion?

It opposes the direction of the motion. That's why an object slows down when it is moving and the kinetic energy turns into thermal energy because of the friction


When a body slides over a surface the kinetic friction and static friction related as?

Kinetic friction is the friction that applies when an object is moving; static friction is the friction that applies when the object is not moving. Static friction must always be greater than, or equal to, kinetic friction.


Is kinetic energy related to an objects height?

No. Kinetic energy is directly related to an object mass and velocity. Potential energy is related to an objects height and mass.


Kinetic energy is related to an objects?

Kinetic energy is the energy of movement. It is related to an object's mass, and to its speed.


How are the direction of an objects motion and the direction that friction acts related?

Friction always acts in a direction opposite to the direction of motion. When to push or pull an object, friction manifests in a direction opposite to motion and the frictional force is dependent on the characteristics of the surfaces. When the push or pull force is slowly increased, at a certain point the frictional force is overcome and the object starts moving.


Kinetic energy is related to an objects height?

No. Kinetic energy is related to an object's movement. The formula is: KE = 0.5mv2.


How is temperature related to the average kinetic energy of molecules that make up a substance?

because kinetic energy creates friction which will make the tempeture rise



Friction is affected by an objects weight?

Yes, friction is proportional to the objects weight. If you double the weight you double the force of friction. The equation is F(friction)=μF(weight), μ is a constant. To learn about friction the best place to go is Wikipedia.org, "The World's Encyclopedia" Go to the Related Link below.


What is kineic energy?

Kinetic energy. That's energy related to the movement of objects, the "energy of movement".


How an car related to physics?

Kinetic energy- capable of movement. Inertia, when moving, and friction-brakes when slowing down.


How is kinetic friction related to cheerleading?

In cheerleading, many stunts involve kinetic friction. For example, take the basket toss. When I flier falls back into their basket, their is a kinetic friction between her and the arms catching her. This, along with the distribution of their downward force through the catchers, helps slow the flier to a stop. Another example is in coed partner stunts. When the base tosses his flier, there must be kinetic friction between the the two (on hands, wrists and waist) especially during the flick.



How is kinetic energy related to heat production?

Friction creates heat when an object rubs against another very quickly. So, if the kinetic energy is higher, then there is a more higher chance of heat production.


How it is friction related with work?

Work = Force x Distance Friction is a force usually operating in the opposite direction to the force being applied. Thus friction adds to the size of the force applied and work is increased.


How is air resistance and friction related?

Gravity is the rate of acceleration at which objects fall to the ground. As an object falls, it pushes air out of its way. Air is pushed upwards in the same direction and with the same amount of force known as its air resistance.Air resistance is relevant to friction because it shows the impact of the object falling on the ground. If there was no friction the object would just drop in an instant.


How is kinetic energy and greatest potential energy related?

At greatest potential energy an object has no kinetic energy. An objects energy is preserved, so as an object drops it will lose the same amount of potential energy as it gains in kinetic energy.


The type of friction that exists for a shark swimming in the ocean is?

Fluid friction is the type that exists for a shark swimming in the ocean. It's related to drag force, which affects objects moving through water.


What is the kinetic and potential energy associated with motion and position?

Potential energy is energy related to position.Kinetic energy is energy related to movement. Potential energy is energy related to position.Kinetic energy is energy related to movement. Potential energy is energy related to position.


What is the kinetic energy if given mass and height?

Height isn't related to kinetic energy (it may be related to potential energy). Kinetic energy is related to mass and velocity.


What do we call an objects resistance in speed or direction?

The resistance to a change in velocity is called "inertia". It is related to the mass of an object.


What kind of energy is caused by an objects vibration?

Vibrations are a form of kinetic energy, however the rate at which an object is vibrating is usually related to it's temperature.


Which energy is related with the velocity of objects?

Kinetic energy EK = 0.5mv2 m is the mass of the object in kg v is the velocity of the object in ms-1 EK is the kinetic energy in kgms-1, usually known as Joules, J.


What is kinetic energy related to?

Kinetic energy is the energy associated with motion.
