What are some ways friction can be reduced?

2 Answers

Using lubrication
is one of the best techniques to reduce friction


Friction occurs when two surfaces are not smooth. They contains some irregular ups and downs in their surface.

we can reduce friction by filling the gaps in the surfaces and reults in plain smooth surfaces.

Some ways are :

  • Using lubricating oil
  • Using wax
  • Make the surface streamline i.e. more smooth.

Wheels and lubrication.


Man discovered long ago that putting wheels under something that is to be moved makes the job much easier. (Sliding things around when they needed to be moved just became a pain.)

After a while those wheels did not turn very well, so man invented WD-40.

I hope this helps,
