Very good Herb --
this is why a train has less friction than a rubber tyred auto.
for those who haven't thought about it -- the friction arises from the fact
that the rolling object and the surface rolled upon are not "infinitely"
hard (or smooth). I suspect in such a case, the ball would slide not roll.
