What is angle of friction?

Expert Answer:

Consider two bodies in contact with each other. Let us say a body is placed on a plane and the plane is then tilted.
 
The maximum angle at which the body starts sliding is called the angle of friction.
 
Up to this value of angle, the body will not slide on the inclined plane.
