How to study the static friction coefficent

i need to know how to study the static friction coefficent like what happens if it exceeds its limit what happens why the least value of static coefficent is static

Once you exceed the force of static friction can resist then you get kinetic friction. That is the friction on a moving object. Its coefficent is almost always less than static friction.

Wait, kgbgru, are you telling me some kinetic coefficients can be more than their respective static ones?

I have never seen one that is greater but some are quite close.

That makes more sense. :)

static friction tries to remove the effect of any force acting along the surface.
its value changes according to the need. if it cannot remove its effect then kinetic friction acts.
actually the force changes
