What is the difference with static friction and kinetic friction?

static friction is the friction between two bodies they are in contact. And another sliding over the other. Kinetic friction is the friction between two bodies they are rolling .And that force is opposite to the rolling angle

Which is greater sliding friction or rolling friction?

sliding friction

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.

Friction can be reduced by changing over from sliding to rolling or rolling to sliding?

rolling to sliding

What does converting sliding friction to rolling friction do to a system?

Converting sliding friction to rolling friction reduces the amount of friction felt on the system.

What are the three types of friction and when does each apply?

There are three types of friction, static friction, rolling friction, and sliding friction. Static friction is friction between two surfaces that aren't moving relatively to each other. Rolling friction is friction between a rolling object and the surface that it is rolling on. Sliding friction is friction where an object slides, or rubs against, another surface.

What are Different between static friction and sliding friction and rolling friction?

Friction is a force between to surfaces that resists motion. Static friction is the resistance to motion when two surfaces are not moving relative to each other. Sliding friction is the resistance to motion when two surface are sliding, one over the other. Sliding friction is less than static friction for the same two surfaces. For rolling friction an object is rolling, like a tire on a road. It's what provides traction between the two and makes the car "go." For a tire on a road, rolling friction is less than sliding friction.
