Q:
# What is frictional force?

**Frictional force is the force created by two surfaces contacting and sliding against each other.** There several different forms of frictional forces, such as dry friction and fluid friction.

Frictional forces are affected by the texture of the surfaces and the amount of force pushing them together. The angle and position of the objects affects the amount of frictional force. If an object is sitting flat against an object, then the frictional force is equal to the object's weight. If the object is pushed against the surface, the frictional force is increased and becomes greater than the object's weight. Objects pulled away from the surface and those at an incline with the surface have less frictional resistance.
