This investigation is all about scientific inquiry, getting students to plan and carry out investigations to explore friction and inclined planes using two types of Whybricks snowboards.
Friction is a force between two surfaces that prevents those surfaces from sliding or slipping across each other.
In other words, friction is the force exerted by the surface of one object as another object moves across it (or makes an effort to move across it). Friction is the force of resistance to the motion between the two surfaces moving over each other.
