#### Give examples to show that friction is both a friend and a foe.



Examples of friction as a friend:
1. We can walk due to frictional forces between ground and our feet.
2. We can  write on board or paper because of friction between the chal...

#### Give two examples showing the harmful effects of friction.



Ans:
1. Opposes motion of a body hence more energy is needed to overcome the friction.
2. Producing the heart in moving parts of machines leads to wastage of energy.
3. For...
