A 100kg wooden box is standing on a wooden floor
A 100kg wooden box is standing on a wooden floor. You push the box with a force of 100N to the right. The box does not move. Draw a complete free body diagram of the box and label all forces.

Static Friction, ƒs Static friction acts to keep the object from moving If F increases, so does ƒs If F decreases, so does ƒs Static friction has a maximum: ƒs  µs FN µs….coefficient of static friction

More About Friction Friction is proportional to the normal force
The coefficient of friction (µ) depends on the surfaces in contact The direction of the frictional force is opposite the direction of the applied force The coefficients of friction are nearly independent of the area of contact
