How to convert kinetic friction to static friction ?

Expert Answer:

Static friction is the force between two objects that are not moving relative to each other. For example, static friction can prevent an object from sliding down a sloped surface. The coefficient of static friction, typically denoted as μs, is usually higher than the coefficient of kinetic friction μk.Kinetic (or dynamic) friction occurs when two objects are moving relative to each other and rub together (like a sled on the ground). .Hence,the two terms are different and can not be compared.
