Friction Coefficient

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Friction coefficient, abbreviated as \(\mu\), also called coefficient of friction, is the ratio between two contacting surfaces and the frictional force that resists the normal force of the object.


Friction Coefficient formula

\(\large{  \mu =   \frac{F_a}{F_n}  }\)   


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

\(\large{ F_a }\) = applied force

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