Roller Coasters - Raytheon

Friction is the force resisting the relative lateral

motion of two solid surfaces in contact. In other

words, friction is the resistance of two objects in

contact from moving in a lateral motion. If you try

to slide down a slope of sandpaper, you wont get

very far (plus the fact of the pain you would be in).

If you try to go down that same slope, but instead

of sandpaper, there was ice, it would be much

easier to do. Roller coasters have to compensate

speed with friction because without speed, there is

no movement.
