Z

:
Non-ferrous metal with excellent resistance to corrosion. Often used to cover and protect mild steel-for example in corrugated roof sheets.

Μ

:

Letter from the Greek alphabet used on the CP course to represent the coefficient of friction when carrying out calculations in the Transmissions Module of the course.

The co-efficient of friction between two surfaces is simply the relationship or ratio between those two forces. If I want to move a body along a surface at a constant speed, it will require a certain force. The magnitude (size) of that force depends upon the nature of the two surfaces in contact and the downward force pushing the two surfaces together.
