### What is the friction that hinders a stationary object from moving on a surface when a force is applied to that object?

Static friction. The frictional force is greater then the force applied, meaning the object can't move.

### Is friction and static the same?

Limiting friction is the case of static friction where an object is right on the edge of moving, any more force applied to the object will cause it to move. Limiting friction is the largest value that the static friction can take

### What is the definition of sliding friction?

The definition of sliding friction is the force that prevents a sliding object from moving.

sliding

yes

### What is the difference between static and rolling friction?

static is standing still, and rolling is movement. static is the friction that prevents the object from moving, rolling is the friction that slows down the object while it is motion.

### Does static or sliding friction keeps an object from moving when a force is applied?

i would say sliding

### What is the force that helps you grip?

It is the pressure applied by muscles in your hand contracting around an object as well as friction between the object and your skin which prevents the object from slipping away.

### What are the consequences of friction?

Friction requires that forces be greater to move an object, but friction also makes it possible for an object to stop moving without an external applied force. Remember, friction ALWAYS opposes motion.

### Is static friction and limiting friction the same?

Limiting friction is the case of static friction where an object is right on the edge of moving, any more force applied to the object will cause it to move. Limiting friction is the largest value that the static friction can take
