Question Can static friction do work? If no, explain why, if yes, give an example. Attempts What I am thinking is when the car do circular motion , it does not slip off the road because the road provides the static frictional force as the centripetal force. However, static friction actually does not move the car for any distance, hence I am not sure this is an answer. If yes, why it is? If no, may I know what is the correct answer?
