What is the example effect of desirable friction?

Very simply, desirable friction can be found on cars. Brakes are a good example. Another one is when you rub your hands together to produce heat.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of kinetic friction?

A disadvantage of friction is; if it's speed you're looking for, a disavantage of kinetic friction, is that it is a source of energy, that will slow down. The advantage I'm about to say, uses the same principals. You are able to apply friction to slow dow. e.g. the brakes in a car.

Give 5 uses of friction?

Writing Writing with a pencil requires friction. You could not hold a pencil in your hand without friction. It would slip out when you tried to hold it to write. The graphite pencil led would not make a mark on the paper without friction. A pencil eraser uses friction to rub off mistakes written in pencil lead. Rubbing the eraser on the lead wears out the eraser due to friction, while the particles worn off gather up the pencil lead from the paper. Driving car Your car would not start moving if it wasn't for the friction of the tires against the street. With no friction, the tires would just spin. Likewise, you could not stop without the friction of the brakes and the tires

Were friction can be useful?

A fire drill is a drill that uses friction to start a fire. It can be very useful when trying to survive in the wilderness Without friction everything would be so slippery that we would have trouble walking or holding anything. Vehicle brakes work thanks to friction between the brake and the wheel. Without that, or the friction on the road, cars would never stop. The list goes on... and on... and on.
