Types of Friction

There are basically two types of friction,

(a) Dry Friction   

(b) Fluid Friction

Dry Friction: Dry friction (also called as coulomb friction manifests when the contact surfaces are dry and there is tendency for the relative motion.

Fluid Friction: Fluid friction manifests when the lubricating fluid is introduced between contact surfaces of the two bodies.
