Succeed in Understanding Friction
by Ron Kurtus
Friction is the study of the resistance to motion. It is a section in Mechanics and a subset of Physics.
The knowledge of friction is important for the development of the products we use. It is also an interesting and exciting subject of value in many walks of life. There is a great need for people who understand scientific principles and know how to think logically. Your knowledge and skills in these areas can help you excel in school, advance your career or improve your business.
The purpose of these free online lessons is to give you a start at improving your scientific knowledge of friction that will help you become a champion in physics. If you have any questions, send me an email.
