What is the maximum value of static friction?


Which type of friction decreases rapidly to a constant value when a body begins to slide?

Kinetic friction

What is the coefficient of kinetic friction represented by μk?


Which type of friction is easier to overcome, rolling or sliding friction?

Rolling friction

What does the angle of repose represent?

The minimum angle of inclination for a body to just begin sliding down

When will a body on an inclined plane not slide?

When μ < tan θ

This quiz covers the different types of frictional force: static frictional force, limiting frictional force, and kinetic frictional force. It explains the concept of coefficient of static friction and how kinetic frictional force changes when an object begins to slide on a surface.
