Explain why sliding friction is less than static friction.

Asked by Topperlearning User 22nd April 2015, 2:32 PM
Answered by Expert

Friction is because of irregularities of two surfaces in contact.

In sliding friction, time given for the interlocking the irregularities of the two surfaces is very small that is why sliding friction is very less than static friction.
