Description

To begin, the experiment P1.2.6.1 verifies that the static friction force FH and the sliding friction force FG are independent of the size of the contact surface and proportional to the resting force G on the base surface of the friction block. Thus, the following applies:

The coefficients µH and µG depend on the material of the friction surfaces. The following relationship always applies:

To distinguish between sliding and rolling friction, the friction block is placed on top of multiple stand rods laid parallel to each other. The rolling friction force FR is measured as the force which maintains the friction block in a uniform motion on the rolling rods. The sliding friction force FG is measured once more for comparison, whereby this time the friction block is pulled over the stand rods as a fixed base (direction of pull = direction of rod axes). This experiment confirms the relationship:
