Please help! :) Two objects have different weights. The first is three times as heavy as the second. If the objects are placed on the same surface, which object would experience the greatest friction if you attempt to move them? a) First object greater friction b) Second object greater friction c) Both objects have the same friction (same surface) d) There is no way to know

    the equation for friction is ukN (or usN) and N = mg so the greater the mass the greater the force of friction

    So it would be A since its mass is larger than the second

    Is the friction between the two different by 3x?

    By 3x I meant 3 times
