# friction acting on an object in 2 diffrent places watch

1. Is the friction the same in both places; and if not how is the coefficient of friction calculated for the object.

Depends if both surfaces have the same coefficient of friction.

Fmax=uR

Maximum possible friction = coefficient of friction X normal reaction force
3. Physics? ew!

Okay thanks.
