Friction

The objectives of the lab are:

         1.    To study the relationship between force of limiting friction and normal reaction. 
         2.    To find the co-efficient of friction between a block and a horizontal surface.Read more

If a moving object is not exposed to any force, it moves with a constant speed and along a straight line. To move an object -for example a car- along a curve a centripetal force is needed to pull it out of the straight path. This force is brought...Read more
