How to Determine an Angle From a Coefficient of Friction?

Answer Friction is a force that works in opposition to sliding motion. When two surfaces are in contact with one another, they each contribute to a resistance to any tangential motion, and the amount of r... Read More »

How to Find Coefficient of Friction on a Horizontal?

The frictional coefficient is the ratio between a moving object's weight and the frictional force that slows it down. Some surfaces offer more friction than others. A tire on dry concrete has a fri... Read More »

Equations for Solving the Coefficient of Sliding Friction?

Friction is the force that resists motion when you push or pull one object along another. There are two types of friction: static and kinetic, or "sliding" friction. Static friction is the force th... Read More »

How to Calculate Velocity With the Coefficient of Friction?

When you apply your car brakes, the forces of physics are working on your behalf. Friction is a force that retards motion, and can bring moving bodies to a halt. The amount of friction you can expe... Read More »

How to Determine an Angle from Inverse Tangent?

The tangent of an angle in a right triangle is the ratio between the lengths opposite and adjacent to the angle. You can therefore calculate the inverse tangent of this ratio to determine the size ... Read More »
