Absorb Advanced Physics by Adrian Watt

Factors affecting static friction

Added by Adrian Watt on Mar 12, 2008

An animation illustrating the factors affecting static friction. A block is pulled along a horizontal surface. The mass and surface area of the block and the texture of the surface can be altered. Drag the green slider to increase the pulling force. Both the pulling and the frictional forces are shown.

This resource is from the unit Friction which is part of Absorb Advanced Physics.
