How does oil reduce air friction?

Oil is mainly used to reduce friction between contacting surface, e.g., metal on metal - not to reduce air friction.


Does overpolishing of surfaces increase the friction between them?

No it does not. It will actually reduce the friction between them.


Why does cartilage reduce friction between bones?

Cartilage reduce friction between bones because without it the bones would rub against.


Do cleats reduce friction?

yes it can also reduce friction especially when its slippery, cleats reduce the surface area that are in contact between the shoes and the ground surface?


What kinds of substance reduce friction?

Friction is the act of one surface rubbing against another. To reduce friction, use something that offers a small amount of friction. Smoother substances reduce friction. A way to reduce friction is to use something which offers a small amount of friction. For example, you could use something like plastic or glass. Water, most liquids and different types of oil reduce friction. Powder, oil and grease are used in between surfaces to also reduce friction.

How can you reduce friction on surfaces?

Basically all you need to do is make the surfaces smoother. Depending on the material, this can be accomplished by sanding, painting, etc. Adding a lubricant such as oil, grease, water, etc. will also reduce the friction between two surfaces. Another thing that can be changed is the kind of friction. For example, rolling friction is generally less than sliding friction. Fluid friction is lesser still than rolling friction. Applications where friction is decreased for better working stuff are things such as: rollerblades, skate boards, air hockey tables, snow boards, and surf boards.


How does a lubricant reduce the amount of friction-?

The lubricants reduce the amount of friction by adding a smooth layer between the two surfaces that are coming into close contact.

yes it reduces friction between bones, and also, synovial fluid reduces friction at the joints as well.


Can you freeze a hockey puck and if so how does it affect the distance it will go or its performance in general?

Yes. Hockey pucks are frozen to reduce friction, thereby increasing its distance range.


What are the ways to increase and reduce friction?

Depends what you want to increase/decrease friction on. If is like a weight on the floor.. Then to increase the friction all you have to do is increase the weight, To reduce it you either reduce the weight or get a smoother surface, or maybe a cloth in-between the floor and the weight.

Does soap increase friction?

In many situations soap may be used to reduce friction. For instance, a carpenter may use soap on a wood screw to reduce the friction between the screw and the wood into which it's being driven.


Is the Olympic hockey pitch supposed to be wet?

Yes, the water helps reduce friction on the surface which helps a dimpled hockey ball travel more smoothly along the ground and not bounce to create a danger to participants on the pitch. It also helps reduce friction burns and surface scrapes on skin when players fall. Sand Based and Sand Dressed pitches are never watered.
