What if there were no friction?
Explore what happens when two surfaces rub together and create friction.
Jennifer lives in a world that would seem very strange to us. Everything is very slippery, like ice. All of the surfaces have very little friction. Friction is the name given to the force that makes something slow down and stop when it is sliding across another surface.
Jennifer is used to her world with very little friction, but we would have trouble.
List the features that you think make a surface slippery. You can use a drawing to help show the features.
Albert lives in a world that is just the opposite. Everything is very sticky. All of the surfaces have a large amount of friction.
Name two surfaces that have a lot of friction.
List the features that you think make a surface have friction. You can use a drawing to help show the features.
3. Explain why you couldn't light matches in a world with no friction.
