Coefficient of static friction of the cubes

Does anybody know what the coefficient of static friction is for the cubes? I’m using it in some calculations.

I set two cubes on top of each other. I was able to lift one edge of the bottom cube about a little over an inch before it started sliding. That should be enough to compute it :slight_smile:

ok maybe not 0

A number very close to 0. When the normal force is increased however, the resistive force increases substantially. This means the cubes on the bottom stack experience a much greater static friction force which should be intuitive. Regardless, I wish there was a way to have a similar friction force for both bottom and top of stacks. Oh wait, I might have a solut…

^Sideways stacks new meta! Just expand during autonomous, and make a giant claw that holds all the cubes and drags all of them during the floor! gg ez wins

That would technically give you uniform static friction but also you’d be very limited very fast. Also, how would you deposit a sideways stack.

^Use string, and make something like a drawbridge.

Regardless, I don’t know if anyone found the coefficient of friction of the Cones back in ITZ. That might be useful, but I’m not sure that they use the same plastic.

The cones interlocked sort of so it’s not comparable to a cube.
