Observing the Forces Involved in Static Friction under Static Situations
Kaplan, Daniel
Physics Teacher, v51 n4 p224-225 Apr 2013
Static friction is an important concept in introductory physics. Later in the year students apply their understanding of static friction under more complex conditions of static equilibrium. Traditional lab demonstrations in this case involve exceeding of the maximum level of static friction, resulting in the "onset of motion." (Contains 4 figures.)
