### What is an example of viscous Friction?

oil in a car's engine reduces viscous friction and wear

### What do you know about fluid friction?

This is known as viscous property

### Air resistance is what kind of friction?

viscous drag- the same as swimming or diving into a pool.

### What has the author F Leprince written?

F. Leprince has written: 'Skin friction determination by LDV measurements in a viscous sublayer' -- subject(s): Turbulent boundary layer, Skin friction (Aerodynamics), Laser Doppler velocimeter 'Skin friction determination by LDV measurements in a viscous sublayer - analysis of systematic errors' -- subject(s): Velocity distribution, Skin friction

### Which friction force is exerted by the fluids?

Viscous force. This is the frictional force between layers in relative motion

### What is the friction found in gases and liquids?

any thing that has atoms-the smallest things in nature, causes friction.

### How does the body cut down friction at joints?

There is a thick liquid produced in the joint spaces to cushion and reduce friction. This viscous fluid is called synovial fluid.

### How do the Viscous properties of engine oils protect the engine during all stages of operation?

Simply by reducing friction and dispersing heat.

### What is the word for a force that opposes the motion of an object?

The opposing forces such as friction in case of solids and viscous force in case of fluids are always present in the natural world.a force can cause a resting object to move, or it can accelerate a moving object by changing the object's speed or direction.in a shorter way to say is frictionFriction

### How is friction reduced in joints like knees and elbows?

1. There is a thick liquid produced in the joint spaces to cushion and reduce friction. This viscous fluid is called synovial fluid.For additional information see related links.

### What is the friction between the air and the surface of a moving object?

Viscous drag on the movement of the falling body due to air medium

### Can a liquid experience friction?

As liquid flows on an inclined surface there will be frictional force between the bottom most layer and the surface of inclined plane. More over there will be a friction between the successive layer of the liquid. This is termed as viscous force.
