Friction in Solids & Liquids
- Friction − Friction is the property due to which a force is set up at the surface of contact of two bodies, preventing any relative motion between them.
- Cause of friction − Irregularities of the two surfaces get interlocked restricting the motion when one body moves or tends to move over the other.
- Types of friction:
- Sliding friction
- Rolling friction
- Sliding friction − Whenever a body slides or tends to slide over the surface of another body, the friction that comes into play is called sliding friction. I…
