5. Frictional Force: It is a force which occurs when 2 moving objects are in contact. It slows down and stops a moving object.It can also produce heat.It has advantages as well as disadvantages.Eg of advantages are :It can hold nails on the wall and also cause the bicycle to come to stop when brakes are applied.
