Abstract—In this work the variation in coefficient of friction with sliding distance is presented. It includes different sliding arrangements for both similar and dissimilar metals using pin on disk experiment. When similar metals slide on each other there is a significant change in friction, due to which ploughing occurs. In case of dissimilar metals, coefficient of metals is determined primarily by the way metal transfer occurs between sliding surface.
