Friction between objects increases Friction does not always increase the thermal energy of both objects. temperature of interacting objects. Increasing in the normal force between Increasing the surface area of two objects increases the friction force interaction between two objects between them. increases the friction force between them. Exploration The force of friction always acts parallel to the surface of interaction. True False When the objects are moving relative to one another, the speed of the moving object affects the magnitude of what is known as the kinetic friction force. True False The force of static friction is always equal to the coefficient of static friction multiplied by the normal force. True False
The force of kinetic friction for a particular pair of interacting objects is always the force of static friction. less than greater than equal to None of the above Static friction is caused by molecular and kinetic friction is caused by molecular . attraction; bonds attraction; repulsion bonds; attraction None of the above The coefficient of static friction is related to the maximum angle of repose by . μ s = sin θ max μ s = tan θ max μ s = θ max None of the above The coefficient of kinetic friction is found from the equation: . μ k = F app FN F N μ k = F app μ k = F app × F N None of the above

With this said, once an object starts to slide along the surface of another object, the friction force between the objects b e nature of the interaction), the normal force (which is related to the weight of the object and the angle of the surface) and the properties of the surfaces orce needed to move the block in either position is the same as well. Since we know that surface area has no direct effect on the forces of friction, this le e greater the static force needed to indicate movement. This in turn, effects the static friction coefficient, meaning that the less surface area between the The force of friction is always represented as a horizontal arrow in a free- body diagram. True False Exercise 1 Explain the difference between static friction and kinetic friction. Discuss the relationship between friction, normal force, and surface area. Compare the static and kinetic friction forces and coefficients determined for the flat wooden friction block and the wooden friction block on its side that were recorded in Data Table 1. What was the relationship of surface area to the force and coefficient of friction between the objects?
