The If a solid object slides on a hard surface, contact to is limited a few points. Between these points, air or other materials separate the object and the underlying surface. The total area of the contact points small that it really is so does not de- pend on the area of the surfaces involved. The total contact area depends more directly on the relative hardness tacting materials of the two con- and on the weight of the sliding object. The number of contact points increases with increasing weight.
