2 Tension-This is a pulling force existing in a stretched string or. a flexible material
Advantages of friction
1.Nuts and bolts stay tight because of friction
2 Brakes are easily. applied because of friction
3 Walking may be difficult without friction
Disadvantages of. friction
1 It causes heat in machines
2 It causes wear and tear in machines 3
