Physics Friction Part 5 (Static Friction) Class 8 VIII

## TL;DR

Friction can be categorized into static friction and sliding friction, which act on objects that are stationary and in motion, respectively.

## Key Insights

• 😣 Friction can be classified into static friction and sliding friction based on whether an object is at rest or in motion.
• 🛝 Static friction prevents objects from sliding even when a force is applied.
• ⛔ Static friction increases as the applied force increases, but only up to a certain limit.
• 🛝 Sliding friction occurs when an object is in motion and opposes the direction of motion.
• ⛔ Static friction ceases to exist once the applied force exceeds the limit, and the object starts moving.
• 🐢 Sliding friction is responsible for slowing down moving objects.
• 🤳 Friction is self-adjustable, with static friction increasing in response to an increase in applied force.

## Transcript

Hello friends this video on friction part five is brought to you by exam fear.com no more fear from exam so now that we have understood the concept of friction we will talk about different types of friction so here we are going to talk about mainly two types of friction that is static friction and sliding friction so let us start with static fricti...

### Q: What is static friction?

Static friction is the force of friction that acts on objects that are not moving, preventing them from sliding. It opposes the applied force and can only increase up to a certain limit before the object starts moving.

### Q: How does static friction become self-adjustable?

Static friction is self-adjustable because as the applied force increases, the force of static friction also increases. However, it can only increase up to a certain limit before the object starts moving.

### Q: When does static friction cease to exist?

Static friction ceases to exist when the applied force exceeds the limit of static friction, causing the object to start moving. Once the object is in motion, sliding friction comes into effect.

### Q: What is sliding friction?

Sliding friction is the force of friction that acts on objects that are in motion. It opposes the direction of motion and is responsible for slowing down the moving object.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• Friction can be categorized into two types: static friction and sliding friction.

• Static friction occurs when an object is at rest and there is a force of friction preventing it from moving.

• Sliding friction occurs when an object is in motion, and friction acts in the opposite direction to the applied force.
