What is the difference between rolling friction and sliding friction?

The force of sliding friction is large and difficult to affect while the force of rolling friction is smaller and easier to overcome.

Is rolling friction less then sliding friction?

Rolling friction is less than the sliding friction because the area of contact is smaller in rolling friction than in sliding friction.The main advantage of this is that we can reduce the friction between the bodies which are sliding over each other by replacing the ball bearings and rollers.
