Friction Calculator

Formula: Friction (F)= μ * N

Enter the unknown value as ‘ x ‘

Friction Coefficient (μ) N

Normal Force (N) = N

Frictional Force (F) = N

x =


Friction Calculator is a free online tool that displays the frictional force for the given normal force. BYJU’S online friction calculator tool makes the calculation faster and it displays the frictional force in a fraction of seconds.

How to Use the Friction Calculator? 

The procedure to use the friction calculator is as follows:

Step 1: Enter the normal force, friction coefficient, and x for the unknown in the input field

Step 2: Now click the button “Calculate the Unknown” to get the result

Step 3: Finally, the friction force will be displayed in the output field

What is Meant by Friction?

In Physics, the friction is a kind of force which opposes the movement between two objects that are in contact. The friction can be classified into four categories, such as

  • Static friction
  • Sliding friction
  • Fluid friction
  • Rolling friction

Among the four types of friction, static, sliding, and rolling friction takes place between the solid surface, whereas the fluid friction takes place in the liquid and gas. Since the friction is considered as a resistance force, it helps to hold items and prevents sliding the objects in many applications.
