What is the difference between kinetic and static friction?

7 years ago


Answers : (1)


when a force is applied on a body to move it  kept on a rough surface Friction force begins to act and till the point the body is static. friction  force acting is the static friction.But as the body beguns to move static friction is lost and the kinetic friction comes into existance.the similarity in both the friction s is that both of them oppose the motion. and the difference in them is that kinetic friction has a constant value while the static friction varies from a minimum value to a certain maximunm value.

In a horizontal circular motion is mg taken into consideration?
Well , in horizontal motion most of the times force mg is balanced by normal reaction. This normal reaction is mostly perpendicular to centripetal force so it doesnt play any role. But if...

Yes it is taken into consideration. All the forces acting on the body are taken into consideration when solving any type of problem unless stated otherwise.

So do you mean that mg is always taken into consideration? Both in vertical and horizontal circular motions???

Sir,The final velocity of a particle falling freely under gravity is given by V^2-u^2=2gx where x is the distance covered. If V=18kmph g=1000cms^-2 x=120cm the u = ms^-1
Just put all the values simply to get the value of u. Therefore, V^2 – u^2 = 2*g*x (18 * 1000 * 100/60*60)^2 = u^2 + 2*1000*120 u^2 = 250000 – 240000 u^2 = 10,000 u = 100 cm/s
