According to Wikipedia, "Rolling resistance, sometimes called rolling friction or rolling drag, is the force resisting the motion when a body (such as a ball, tire, or wheel) rolls on a surface."
But at the same time, it is the static friction that is responsible for the forward movement of the wheels of a vehicle, according to many sources. But by the above definition, should it not be the rolling friction that comes into play?
I had also found rolling friction to be defined as follows: "Rolling resistance tends to be a catch all term for the energy dissipated in the many moving parts as a vehicle moves."
(For more, please visit Rolling resistance and static friction )
1) So, which definition is the right one?
2) Also, which friction is applicable for the motion of the wheels of a vehicle?
3) The motion of the wheels of a vehicle is considered "rolling without slipping". I know this sounds stupid, but does the condition "rolling and slipping" exist?
