What are the equations that can be used to calculate friction, be detailed i don't know much about.
The equation for calculating friction is F = μN, where F is the force of friction, μ is the coefficient of friction, and N is the normal force.
The coefficient of friction can be calculated by dividing the force of friction by the normal force.
The normal force is the force that is perpendicular to the surface of contact between two objects. It is equal to the weight of the object pressing down on the surface.
Surface area does not directly affect friction. However, it can indirectly affect it by increasing the number of contact points between two surfaces, which can increase the coefficient of friction.
Yes, the coefficient of friction can be greater than 1, which indicates a higher frictional force between two surfaces. This can occur with rough or sticky surfaces, for example.
