Friction: (Ih-ti-ck-a-ak) احتكاك

Explanation:
Friction: احتكاك

احتكاك (Ih-ti-ck-a-ck): Friction.

Friction appears when movement is attempted.

I am not really sure what you mean by "static friction" and "rolling friction".

By definition, friction is the resistance to force and movement due to the "frictional" force between two surfaces in contact with each other. The relational value of this phenomenon is referred to as "coeffecient of friction".

The value of friction (a force) is dependent on the nature of the two surfaces in contact (the COF) and the force with which these surfaces are pressed against each other.
