Friction Is Not Fiction!

Unit 1: Forces in One Dimension
Lesson 8 of 11

Objective: Students explore what factors affect the amount of friction between two objects and use the friction equation to solve a variety of problems.

Big Idea: The force of friction between two objects is determined by the normal force and the properties of the surfaces in contact.
