# What is a force that resists an object moving over another?

## What is a force that resists an object moving over another?

FRICTION: Friction is a force that opposes motion. When two objects are in contact, friction is acts in a direction opposite to the motion of the object.

## What is the force that resists moving one object against another?

Friction is a force that resists the motion of one object against another.

## What is the resistance force that one object encounters when moving over another object?

Friction is the resistance that one object encounters when moving over another. A simple way to feel friction in action is to rub your hands together quickly. The heat you feel between your hands is because of the resistance between the two surfaces of your hands, or friction.

## Which force acts as resistance when one object moves against another?

Friction is the force of resistance to motion between two surfaces moving over each other. Friction only occurs when movement occurs. Friction will stop motion if the moving force is not strong enough to overcome the contact between the surfaces.

## What is a force that resists?

friction, force that resists the sliding or rolling of one solid object over another.

## What are resisting forces called?

In physics, resistive force is a force, or the vector sum of numerous forces, whose direction is opposite to the motion of a body, and may refer to: Friction, during sliding and/or rolling. Drag (physics), during movement through a fluid (see fluid dynamics)

## What are forces between two surfaces that resist?

The resistance between two surfaces when attempting to slide one object across the other. Friction is due to interactions at molecular level where “rough edges” bond together: Friction is always opposite to the direction of motion.

## What are 3 examples of useful friction?

• Writing or drawing with a pen or pencil.
• Applying brakes to stop a vehicle.
• Generating heat by rubbing both hands together.

## Who discovered friction?

The classic laws of sliding friction were discovered by Leonardo da Vinci in 1493, a pioneer in tribology, but the laws documented in his notebooks were not published and remained unknown. These laws were rediscovered by Guillaume Amontons in 1699 and became known as Amonton’s three laws of dry friction.

## What are 2 examples of contact forces?

Examples of contact forces include friction, tension, and air resistance.

## What are the 5 main types of forces?

• Gravitational force.
• Electric force.
• Magnetic force.
• Nuclear force.
• Frictional force.

## What are 5 ways to reduce friction?

• Make the surfaces little more smoother. …
• Lubrication is another way to make a surface smoother. …
• Make the object more streamlined. …
• Reduce the Normal force acting between the surfaces in contact. …
• Reduce the contact between the surfaces, so that less number of bonds will be formed.
