The frictional force always acts oppositely to the applied force.
For two given surfaces, the coefficient of static friction is generally greater than the coefficient of kinetic friction.
Friction is a force which is unavoidable and serves no practical purpose.
Two very highly-polished surfaces in contact with one another will have very little friction between them.
Friction always acts in the direction of motion.
