Assignment:

• #’s 15-17 and 19-21

Friction a force that opposes motion

What do you think friction depends on?

It depends on the two surfaces that are in contact.

Not all surfaces have the same amount of friction.

Do rough / smooth surfaces have more friction?

A rough surface will have less overall contact with an object.

More or less friction?

Smooth surfaces will have more contact with an object.

More or less friction?

It depends on the size of the object.

Does more mass mean more friction?

Does more surfacearea (in contact) mean more friction?

Chapter 5

### Friction...

• Friction is caused by the “microscopic” interactions between the two surfaces. Your book refers to it as “electromagnetic bonding”

Friction is not dependant of surface area in contact, or surface smoothness.

Friction depends on the two types of surfaces in contact.

“Sticky” surfaces “slippery” surfaces

FRICTONAL COEFFICIENT ( µ )

(mu, “mew” 12th character of the ancient Greek alphabet)

A number (coefficient) that is given to two materials that helps

determine the frictional force between them.

µ will always be less than 1 (one) for us in this class.

(sticky surfaces can be more than 1)

### friction

• How does it work?

It opposes motion.

It always acts parallel to the surface.

It cannot cause motion!

What force is going to cancel the weight?

Weight (mg)

NORMAL FORCE IS THE FORCE OF A SURFACE ON AN OBJECT.

IT IS ALWAYS DIRECTED PERPENDICULAR TO THE SURFACE.

### What if Fapplied is larger than the frictional force?

The resulting force causes

an acceleration.

### Remember Newton’s first law (inertia) and the level of force needed to move a refrigerator;

Once you get it moving, it is easy to keep moving. Why is that?

PHYSICS!

Ugh!

### Sliding Friction

The constant K is called the “coefficient of kinetic friction”

µK is discovered by pulling with a constant Fapplied

as the object slides at a constant speed.

Fapplied – µkinetic (Fnormal) = ma

if: ma = 0 (no acceleration) then: Fapplied = µkinetic (Fnormal)

or:

µkinetic = Fapplied / Fnormal

### Static Friction...

The constant µS is called the “coefficient of static friction”

µS is discovered by increasing Fapplied until the

block is at the brink of starting to slide.

Fapplied – µstatic (Fnormal) = ma

if: ma = 0(no motion)then: Fapplied = µstatic (Fnormal)

or:

µstatic = Fapplied / Fnormal

brake lining / iron0.40.3

tire / dry pavement0.90.8

tire / wet pavement0.80.7

It takes nearly 25% longer to stop on wet

asphalt as dry

four times longer to

stop on dirt road as dry asphalt.

Wet snow is almost impossible to start,

stop or turn a vehicle on (inertia)

Coefficient of friction

– A. Dry asphalt is .78

– B. Wet asphalt is .60

– C. Dirt road is .20

– D. Dry snow is .20

– E. Wet snow is .10

Types of Traction

There are three types of traction. Each are to

overcome inertia. (rest, motion, straight line)

– A. Acceleration traction

– B. Braking traction

– C. Cornering traction

Things That Can Affect Traction.

A.. Tires - Type, Wear, Inflation

B.. Road Surface - Asphalt., Concrete, Gravel, Dirt

C.. Condition of road – Surface, Rain, Snow, Ice

More Factors that affect Traction:

Weight of vehicle

Type of vehicle
