Difference between Sliding and Rolling Friction
|S.No.||Sliding Friction||Rolling Friction|
|1||It is the force of friction acting between two bodies which slide or surfaces which are rubbing against each other.||It occurs when the surface of one body is rolling against the surface of another body.|
|2||Rolling of the bodies over others actually reduces the friction.||Sliding of the body increases the friction. Hence sliding friction is always larger than rolling friction.|
|3||It acts as a back-haul external force along the contact area to stop the relative motion.||It is a force which attempts to stop the rolling motion by generating a reverse torque and so, rolling friction is a resistive force but not a type of friction.|
