Quick Reference

A measure of how easily a ball will roll on a surface. The coefficient of rolling friction depends on the nature of the ball and the surface, the normal reaction force, and the diameter of the ball. A heavily grassed, soft, wet surface has a much higher coefficient of rolling friction than one that is bare, hard, and dry. For any given surface, the coefficient of rolling friction is less thanthe coefficient of sliding friction. See also coefficient of friction.
