How do different surfaces affect friction?

Friction is not a fundamental force. It is a result, not a cause – unlike gravity or electromagnetism. Specifically: friction occurs due to electromagnetic attraction between charged particles in mating surfaces. Whether those surfaces are in motion plays a role in the type of friction at play (static versus kinetic). But most important is the […]
