  1. Define the term friction.

  2. Explain how friction is related to the net force an object feels.

  3. Explain how friction is related to the resistance an object feels moving through a fluid (i.e. air, water, etc.).

  4. Explain the difference between static and sliding friction.

  5. Use some form of graphic to help the learner visualize how Newton’s second law of motion is related to free fall.

  6. Try to use real world/meaningful examples whenever possible.

  7. Use some means for the learner to check their understanding.

This learning packet should help the learner understand the concept of friction.
