### Friction

Don’t rub me the wrong way!

Kinds of friction
• 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
Proportional to the Normal Force
• 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

Tribology
• Contact Mechanicsof Moving Interfaces
• Generally involves energy dissipation
• Also encompasses the science fields of:
