This web page provides a multimedia introduction to coefficients of friction.  It includes experiments designed to determine the coefficients of static and kinetic friction and the dependence on area of the coefficient of static friction.  Short video clips are integrated with text to promote understanding of important concepts.  

This tutorial is part of the PhysClip collection of web-based resources on introductory mechanics, electricity, and magnetism.
