The maximum frictional force, which comes into play, when a body just begins to slide over the surface of the other body, is known as

(a) static friction

(b) dynamic friction

(c) limiting friction

(d) coefficient of friction

I got this question in a national level competition.

This interesting question is from Friction of Pivot and Collar Bearing in division Friction of Machine Kinematics

by (106k points)
The correct choice is (c) limiting friction

For explanation I would say: The friction, experienced by a body, when at rest, is known as static friction.

The friction, experienced by a body, when in motion, is known as dynamic friction.

The maximum frictional force, which comes into play, when a body just begins to slide over

the surface of the other body, is known as limiting friction.
