A ball rolling on ground slows down and finally stops because of
A ball rolling on ground slows down and finally stops because of friction offered by ground. Frictional force works in opposite direction of motion to slow down the ball.
The force of friction acts in a direction _____ to the direction of motion of object.
Friction produces heat. When two moving surface in contact of each other produce friction heat is developed. Moving fans become hot due to this friction.
Sliding friction is ______________ than static friction.
The sliding friction is less than static friction because of the interlocking of irregularities in the two surfaces. When the object starts sliding the contact points on its surface, do not get enough time to lock into the contact points on the floor. So the sliding friction is slightly less than the static friction.
Sprinkling of powder on the carrom board
We sprinkle powder on carrom board to make the surface of the board smooth. This reduces the friction between the surface of the carrom board, the striker and the coins. As a result, the coins and the striker can move easily on the carrom board.
Fluid friction can be minimized by
The substances that flow are called fluid. Liquid and gases are common fluid. Friction in fluid can be minimized by giving suitable shape as streamline to ships and airplanes.
The heat in metals is conducted by the process of
The process of heat transfer in which particles transfer heat one after the other in contact is called conduction. The heat in metals is conducted by the process of conduction.
In machine, friction between moving part is reduced by
In machine, friction between moving part is reduced by using lubricants. These lubricant stick with machine parts to make them smoother that leads to reduction in frication.
Friction opposes the __________ between two surfaces in contact.
Friction opposes the relative motion between two surfaces in contact. Frictional force acts in opposite direction of motion to slow down the speed of moving body.
