What does static friction mean?

A force that resists changing its state of the rest of an object is called static friction. When you tend to move an object along a surface up to a certain quantum force, the object doesn’t move. This is because the object tends to be static and tries to oppose any force trying to disturb it in a static condition. The opposing force is called static friction. It is denoted as Fs.

Types of Static Friction

  • Friction between the various parts or movies of a liquid is regarded as fluid friction.
  • The frictional force between this lubricant and any solid’s two surfaces is regarded as lubricated friction. 
  • There is a frictional force between the liquid and the solid surface when a liquid moves across the body of any solid. This is skin friction
  • When two strong substrates fall into touch, dry friction is the frictional force.
