Yes, this is a true statement and causes friction.

### Why the back tires of tractors are big?

Tractors need to move heavy loads across soft earth surfaces. Large tires increase torque, increase effective surface area for better traction, and are less likely to get bogged down in potholes, gullies, or other surface irregularities.

### Do shiny surfaces reflect light better than dull surfaces?

A more definitive answer: If you look at a dull surface under a microscope you'll find that is is not smooth, even if it appears so to the naked eye. There are may microscopic bumps and depressions. This means that rather than a single, consistent surface there are many tiny surfaces facing in random directions. Light is subsequently reflected in random directions. In other words, there is no consistent reflection. Conversely, a shiny surface will appear much smoother. The irregularities on such a surface are generally too small to affect light in the visible spectrum. This means there is a single consistent surface for light to reflect from.

### What force opposes motion whenever two surfaces rub againest each other?

friction is the force which opposes relative motion between the bodies.All the surfaces are not perfectly smooth,there will be some irregularities in its surface,when other bodies rub on this surfaces it will stucj in these irregular spaces this is called friction,there is allot of definitions about friction,but this theory is universly accepted,there are twko types of friction 1)static friction:its the friction when two bodies are at rest 2)kinetic friction:when two bodies are in motion when rubbing kinetic friction is acting
