Kinetic Friction Coefficient

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Fluid Mechanics

kinetic friction coefficientKinetic friction coefficient is a dimensionless number, the amount of force that resists motion at a constant velocity.

formula

\( \mu_k\) (Greek symbol mu) \(=   \frac {f_k}{F_n}\)

Where:

\(\mu_k\) = kinetic friction coefficient

\(f_k\) = kinetic friction

\(F_n\) = normal force
