What is stationary friction?

stationary friction is when friction is happening on an object that is stationary.(STATIONARY MEANS STAYS STILL, OR NO MOVEMENT)

What kind of friction can must be overcome to start movement of a stationary object?

Static friction must be overcome. Once a force has been applied that starts the object in motion, the force of kinetic friction is less than its static counterpart.

What type of friction must be overcome in order to get an object moving?

Stationary or static friction is the friction for a stationary object that resists the initiation of motion relative to a surface or another connected object.

When is friction at its greatest stage?

When the object that the friction is acting upon is stationary.

What is the force that causes stationary object?

Frictional force is a retarding force.It is friction that causes an object to become stationary.

Name the four types of friction?

1. Standing or Static Friction: is the resistance that opposes the initial movement of a body at rest. To start an object moving, a certain amount of frictional resistance must be overcome. 2. Sliding Friction or kinetic: is the resistance that opposes the continued movement of an object. To keep and object moving at a constant speed requires a constant force to overcome the kinetic friction. 3. Rolling Friction: Is the resistance that opposes the motion of a wheel or roller as it rolls along a surface. 4. Fluid friction: is the resistance to movement within the layers of a fluid.

What forces act on a stationary object question mark I know there's weight reaction force and a minute amount of friction but hasn't there got to be a force that opposes friction?

Actually, don't worry I know the answer to this particular question now. There is friction, weight (mxg) and reaction force. Movement opposes friction, but that isn't taking place when an object is stationary.

What force must you overcome to start an object moving?

Friction. Specifically, static friction. After the object begins to move, it will still be necessary to overcome rolling or sliding friction to keep it in motion.

What Movement occurs when an object moves relative to a?

Movement Occurs When an Object moves Relative to a Stationary Object

Why is kinetic friction less than the limiting friction?

By my understanding, this is due to the fact that it is easier to keep a moving object in motion than it is to accelerate it from a resting position. When a force is exerted on a stationary object, acceleration relies on that force alone. However, with a moving body, the momentum of the object reduces the force needed to overcome friction.

As the pull on a stationary object increases the force of static friction remains constant?

No. In order for an object to remain stationary, the forces on it must be balanced. If the pull on the object increases, the force of static friction must also increase.

What does Frictional force resist?

Frictional force resists movement. In order to set an object into motion (or accelerate an already moving object), the force of friction must be overcome.

When an object is seen moving in relation to a stationary object the stationary object is called the?

A stationary object used to gauge the movement of another object might be called the reference. This could also be termed as the point of reference.

What effect does friction have when you are trying to move an object at rest?

It provides static friction, so the object cannot move until the static friction is overcome.

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.

Explain how friction affects the motion of an object?

Friction is speed's worst enemy. If no forces act on an object, it is stationary. If a force acts on an object, it keeps going forever until another force acts on it (such as friction!!!).

What effect does friction to an object at rest?

It provides static friction, so the object cannot move until the static friction is overcome. For example, if the object at rest had 5N static friction, it would take 5.1N to make the object start moving.

How does friction hinder movement?

Friction allows the object to move more easily.

How does friction move an object?

Friction doesn't cause or create movement, it's a force that prevents or hinders movement.

What type of force you have to overcome to start an object moving?

To begin to move an object, the force we will first have to overcome is the static friction of the object. It is fairly well known that if we're going to, say, slide a box across a floor, it takes more force to start it moving, and less to keep it moving. That's the difference between the static friction and the dynamic friction. It takes more force to "break loose" the object and start it moving (overcome static friction) than it does to actually keep it moving (overcome dynamic friction). A link can be found below.
