Laws Of Dry Friction! Trivia Questions Quiz

Dry Friction occurs on dry or rough surfaces and with the help of solid objects. It sometimes necessitates the action of humans to generate any type of motion. It is done when we move things around in our new apartment, it is also done in factories where boxes and objects are moved from one area to another. So, what do you know about the laws of dry friction? Take our quiz and find out now.


Questions and Answers
