The answer is no. Friction affects acceleration, not the other way around.


Friction can be affected by the normal force between two objects, but is essentially independent of the surface area between the objects and the velocity of the objects.

Acceleration is determined by the amount of friction, because friction plays a role in determining the net force on a body. There is no dependence the other way - acceleration (like velocity) does not affect friction.
