thumbnailNanotechnology and the concept of friction
1.1 What is friction? Take this everyday example: when a coffee mug rests on a flat table, the kinetic frictional force is zero. There is no force trying to move the mug across the table, so there is no need for a frictional force because there is nothing ...
