I have some confusions between static friction and kinetic friction: When the static friction equals to applied force on an object, an object doesn't move and stays at rest I think. How about if the static friction is larger than the applied force? Will the object still stay at the rest, that the object will not be moved to opposite direction of the applied force? When the applied force is larger than the static friction, then it starts to move? When the object is moving, it has a kinetic friction. If the kinetic friction is equal to the applied force, will the object come to rest or will move in a uniform motion? If the kinetic friction is larger than the applied force, will the object move in an opposite direction of the applied force? Thanks for help.
