Length: 15 pages

Friction is a force that resists relative motion between two surfaces in contact. Friction can be beneficial, such as when attempting to plant your feet to move a heavy object. However, friction in rotating equipment can be detrimental. Excessive friction causes premature wear and generates heat, which results in wasted energy.

In this course, you will learn the basics of friction and wear and how lubrication is used to reduce friction in common applications.
