If you try to push an object that is 10 times heavier than you would there be static or kinetic friction? ( the heavy object doesn't move if even you use force)

-I know that there is no kinetic friction because the object is not moving. I am not sure about static friction.

  1. Static friction keeps the heavy object from moving. Unless your shoes slip pushing it, there is static friction below your feet also.
