General Friction Info& Inclined Planes

  1. Dec 16, 2009 #1
    I'm wondering about general info on friction and how to find it. Also equations that are related to it also. And I want to know how to draw inclined planes at an angle.
    Thanks!

    Frictional force depends upon contact between two materials. It arises due to electromagnetic interaction between the atoms of two materials. See http://www.actionurl.com/ia9fh [Broken]
    PS: there are plenty of graphic softwares for creating images like inclined planes. Try MS paint, adobe photoshop etc.
