Narrator: Shown in such a situation, gravity is the force which allows any two objects to pull towards earth or any physical body with mass.
Timmy!! Dinners Ready!!
Aww man, and when I thought this day was going to be good, of course I ended with mud all over my face…..
Narrator: The reason for Timmy's downward motion is because he is moving towards gravity pull, causing acceleration and when the uphill stops him, that is because it is forcing a person to oppose such pull, making it more difficult to pedal upwards. In the end, after a while, the two forces cause him to begin to slow down.
Narrator: Then of course friction must play a role in life. The friction that will be demonstrated in the following is sliding friction, being when two objects rub/slide against each other, usually being on a surface.
Huh I guess bad luck really is on my side . Every time I try to run on a rainy day, I slip and fall….. I wonder why the world can just.. You know… not be slippery for once.
Narrator: Sliding friction is demonstrated because when Timmy slips on the mud, his foot is sliding upon the surface of the grass, and since it was slippery this had caused him to fall .
