Friction

Friction - the force needed to drag one object across another. (at a constant velocity) Depends on: How hard the surfaces are held together What type of surface it is (i.e. rough, smooth) Not supposed to depend on: Surface area (pressure) Speed (low speeds)

F Fr = μF N Force of Friction in N Coefficient of Friction. 0 < μ < 1 Normal Force - Force exerted by a surface to maintain its integrity Usually the weight (level surfaces)

K inetic Friction - Force needed to k eep it going at a constant velocity. F Fr = μ k F N Always in opposition to velocity St atic Friction - Force needed to st art motion. F Fr < μ s F N Keeps the object from moving if it can. Only relevant when object is stationary. Always in opposition to applied force. Calculated value is a maximum

A 5.0 kg block of wood has a μ s of 0.41, and a μ k of.24 between itself and the level floor. a. Calculate the limit of static friction, and the kinetic friction. 20.1105 ≈ 20. N, 11.772 ≈ 12 N 5.0 kg

A 5.0 kg block of wood has a μ s of 0.41, and a μ k of.24 between itself and the level floor. (20.1105 N, 11.772 N) b. The block is at rest, and you exert a force of 15 N to the right to try to make it move. Draw and label all the forces acting on the block 5.0 kg

A 5.0 kg block of wood has a μ s of 0.41, and a μ k of.24 between itself and the level floor. (20.1105 N, 11.772 N) c. If the block is initially at rest, and we exert a force of 35 N to the right, calculate the block’s acceleration. 4.6456 ≈ 4.6 m/s/s 5.0 kg

A 5.0 kg block of wood has a μ s of 0.41, and a μ k of.24 between itself and the level floor. (20.1105 N, 11.772 N) d. Kyle and Sally both exert a force on the block, and it accelerates from rest to a 5.2 m/s over a distance of 10. m to the right. If Kyle exerts a force of 25 N to the right, what force in what direction does Sally exert? -6.468 ≈ -6.5 N 5.0 kg
