What is friction?
Can you give me some examples?


friction: Ever have a pinwheel and move it thru the wind? Friction makes the wheel turn.

Ever on a bike an press the brake? Friction makes the wheel stop.

Friction is the force where it stops things from moving

For example , if your trying to move a table and the table cannot move , well that's friction which is stopping you from moving it

You can notice the change in friction when sliding on a patch of ice that suddenly ends. The small layer of water between the ice and your feet reduces the friction, but the friction of the new surface is much greater, causing you to lose your balance.

A meteor mets the friction of the air, causing it to heat up and glow.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
