Friction

Don’t rub me the wrong way!

- Static
- Exists between two surfaces that are NOT moving relative to each other

- Kinetic
- Exists between two surfaces that ARE moving relative to each other

- In MOST instances….
- Static friction is greater than kinetic friction

- Ff= μs FN : Magnitude of frictional force due to static friction
- Static Coefficient of Friction - μs

- Ff= μkFN : Magnitude of frictional force due to kinetic friction
- Kinetic Coefficient of Friction - μk

μ – “mu” – small Greek letter M

- symbol for coefficient of friction

- Contact Mechanicsof Moving Interfaces
- Generally involves energy dissipation
- Also encompasses the science fields of:
- Adhesion
- Friction
- Lubrication
- Wear

- Surface imperfections
- Inter-particle attractions
- Other?
