When diagnosed with 3c 4c 5c 6c bulging discs with severe head pain and pain in your neck radiating into shoulders left arm and tingling in your fingers what all can be done is there a pinched nerve?

If the disks are herniated (bulging is another term) the specific nerves causing your problems ARE being pinched/compressed by the disks - that's what happens when you herni (MORE)

Is there friction in space?

No there is none, because in space it is a vacuum, meaning there is a near total absence of particles which can cause friction. ==== OF COURSE there's little or no frictio (MORE)

Can there be no friction?

It is impossible to have no friction. If there was no friction we would be sliding all over the place, nothing would be balanced.

What is static friction and sliding friction?

Static friction is always greater than sliding friction. Static friction is the type of friction that exists when two objects touch each other at rest. Sliding friction is jus (MORE)

What can friction be?

When you look at surfaces under a microscope they are pretty rough. Molecules stick out everywhere. So when you slide one surface over another the molecules bump into each oth (MORE)

What can friction do?

Friction acts to inhibit or "decrease" motion. Friction applies to any moving object, and will always act to slow it down or resist a change in its direction of motion.

How do you get friction?

How do you get friction? You get friction if you tried to drive a car on bumpy and rough surfaces. The more friction you get, the more slower you'll go. Now, it wouldn't b (MORE)

When friction is not usefull?

When spinning wheels hydroplane atop water's lattuce... the speed causes the rotation of the tires on the surface to breifly act as a , e.x. sheet of ice and a skidding effect (MORE)
