We have been learning in class about the force of friction. It has many purposes and causes many problems. On one hand, high friction can reduce efficiency in energy production in power plants as well as engines. On the other hand, without friction, we couldn’t walk, drive, or fly; at least not the way we now do. Your assignment is to think about what a world would be like without friction and to post a one paragraph (200-300 word) description of such a world on this site by Friday, December 2. You also need to reply with some specific feedback (either constructive suggestions or constructive agreement) to at least 2 of your peers by Sunday, December 4. This counts as a homework, and you will be assessed only based on participation (which includes completing your posts on time).
An upcoming quiz will relate directly to this blog assignment, so don’t forget to check in and look at each others comments (and mine if I add some)
Have fun with this!
