Question 1: What is friction?

Answer: The force created due to relative movement between two surfaces is called friction.

Question 2: What is static friction?

Answer: The minimum amount of force that is required to overcome the force of friction is called static friction.

Question 3: What is sliding friction?

Answer: Once an object starts moving on a surface, some force is required to keep the object moving. The minimum force that is required to keep a moving object in motion at a constant speed is called sliding friction.

Question 4: What is rolling friction?
