Mini-Quiz: Sliding Friction

by Ron Kurtus (revised 17 November 2016)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is static sliding friction?

The friction causes static electricity

The object is stationary and resists sliding

It is the same as kinetic sliding friction

2. What happens when the external force equals the static sliding friction force?

The object starts to move

Static friction equals kinetic friction

The force turns into friction

3. How does static sliding friction compare with the kinetic friction?

Static sliding friction is less than the kinetic sliding friction force

Static sliding friction equals the kinetic sliding friction force

Static sliding friction is more than the kinetic sliding friction force

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Constantly improve yourself
