Introduction to Friction

A series of simple computer animations and a narrator explain friction. The force of friction is defined and explained as a self-adjusting force. Causes and types of friction are illustrated and ways to minimize it are listed. There are interactive elements that do not function through this website. The video is accurate, all-encompassing, and educational; however, it is somewhat lifeless. You would not want to show it to children with short attention spans.
