Correct Answer - Option 4 : It does not cause wastage of energy

The correct answer is It does not cause wastage of energy.

  • Friction is the force that resists the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other.

  • Friction always works in the opposite direction in which the object is moving or trying to move.
  • Friction is caused by the interlocking of irregularities in the surface of two objects which are in contact with each other. 
  • In order to move one object over the other, a force is applied to overcome the interlocking of the irregularities in their surfaces.
  • Friction is a force that resists the relative motion between two objects or materials.
  • Friction causes an adequate loss of energy in the form of heat, sound, and light.
  • Friction is a necessary evil because it can be harmful to us like fire accidents, wear, and tear.
