Kinetic Friction Coefficientkinetic friction coefficient

Kinetic friction coefficient ( \(\mu_k\) ) (dimensionless number) (also called coefficient of kinetic friction) is the amount of force that resists motion at a constant velocity

Kinetic Friction Coefficient FORMULA

\(\large{ \mu_k =   \frac {f_k}{F_n}  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \mu_k }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = kinetic friction coefficient

\(\large{ f_k }\) = kinetic friction

\(\large{ F_n }\) = normal force
