STATIC & KINETIC FRICTION- CAR SLIDING DOWN SLOPE: 2 of 2<br />
Rear Wheels Locked- Orange Car<br />
With the rear wheels locked the car spins out & crashes. A rolling tire is an example of static friction- the contact point is instantaneously at rest with the road. A locked tire has kinetic friction- the contact point skies on the road.
