FRICTION
1) Force of friction :-
Force of friction is the force which opposes the motion of an object
over a surface.
The force of friction acts between the object and the surface.
Eg :- A ball rolling on ground gradually slows down and comes to
rest due to force of friction between the ball and the ground.
If we stop pedalling a bicycle, it gradually slows down and
comes to a stop due to force of friction between the wheel and

The force of friction acts between the object and the surface.
Eg :- A ball rolling on ground gradually slows down and comes to

If we stop pedalling a bicycle, it gradually slows down and
comes to a stop due to force of friction between the wheel and

2) Factors affecting friction :-
Friction depends upon two factors. They are :-
i) Nature of the surfaces in contact. ( The smoothness of the
surfaces).
ii) How hard the surfaces press together.
Friction is less on a smooth surface.

Friction is more on a rough surface.

Friction is more if the surfaces are
pressed harder.

Friction is less if the surfaces are
not pressed harder.

Friction is less if the surfaces are
not pressed harder.

3) Cause of friction :-
Friction is caused due to the interlocking of irregularities between the
two surfaces in contact.
Smooth surfaces have minute irregularities between the two surfaces.
Rough surfaces have larger irregularities between the two surfaces.
So force of friction is more if the surfaces are rough.
