### How does the coefficient of static friction for two surfaces in contact compare to the coefficient of kinetic friction for the same two surfaces?

The coefficient of static friction is always larger because it takes more initial force to move an object that is at rest.

### What kind of friction requires more force to overcome rollingfriction or sliding friction?

Coefficient of rolling friction will always be less than that of sliding friction. Hence more force is required to overcome sliding friction. Because the force = coefficient of friction x normal force (ie weight of the body)

### Is the coefficient of friction up to 13 unit?

No. Coefficient of friction is not measured in units.

### What factors determine the coefficient of friction?

quality of the Surface is affected to the Coefficient of friction

### What are the two factors that affect the friction force between two surfaces?

The strength of the force of friction depends on the types of surfaces involved and on how hard the surfaces push together.

### Is coefficient of friction or coefficient of limiting friction are same?

Limiting friction is just the maximum static friction force (if you go over that point static friction becomes kinetic friction).Let f = frictional force,c = coefficient of frictionN = Normal forcefmax = cN = limiting frictionAlthough the term coefficient of limiting friction is not really used, I'd assume it would just be "c" (it's a coefficient after all). So they would be the same.If you meant is coefficient of friction the same as limiting friction, than the answer is no. Coefficient of friction is just the "c" in the equation. Limiting friction however is the product of the coefficient and the normal force.

### What is the coefficient of friction of linoleum rubber?

You need two different materials to determine the coefficient of friction. Without another material you cannot know what the coefficient of friction is.

### What are the units that friction is measured in?

The coefficient of friction is dimensionless; it has no units.

### What the value of abs plastic static friction coefficient?

With what material? Coefficient of friction is for two materials.

### What are the units of the coefficient of friction?

The coefficient of friction is a scalar quantity which has no direction which does not have an angle.

### What is coefficient of friction..?

A higher coefficient of friction indicates that two surfaces in contact have a greater resistence. A lower coefficient of friction indicates that the two surfaces in contact have less resistence. Soccer cleats on grass have a greater coefficient of friction than skates on ice.

### What is friction coefficient?

A higher coefficient of friction indicates that two surfaces in contact have a greater resistence. A lower coefficient of friction indicates that the two surfaces in contact have less resistence. Soccer cleats on grass have a greater coefficient of friction than skates on ice.
