3 ways to reduce friction
2. Separate with rolling objects
The natural force of attraction between particles of matter. The force increases with increased mass.
Newtons first law
A body remains at rest or moves with constant velocity as long as no external force acts on it.
The tendency of objects to remain in there state of motion. It depends on mass.
Newtons 2nd law
An object will accelerate in the direction of the net force. The greater the force, or the smaller the mass, the greater the acceleration. F=m times a
Newtons 3rd law
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
