Can a coefficient of friction be a whole number? Or does it have to be a decimal?

Answered By Abdullah A

The coefficient of friction can be anywhere from 0 to infinity, technically. Rubber, for example, has a coefficient of 1.16.


This can be due to the internal structure of a material, the environmental conditions, the adhesive/cohesive properties etc.
