2.5 Translational Equilibrium and Friction

Textbook reading: You need to be able to identify and define kinetic friction, coefficient of kinetic friction, static friction and coefficient of static friction. Find these definitions in section 6-1 (pages 148-156). You DO NOT need to read all the text in these pages. Simply locate and familiarize yourself with the definitions. You can also skip the pages on rolling friction (154-156)….. for now. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA (evil laugh for Adelene). 

Pre-reading question: Conceptual question 10 on page 177.

Translational Equilibrium:


Post-reading question: Conceptual question 15 on page 177. I PROMISE the videos cover this. Think hard. Hint: What is the normal force? How does it affect friction?
