Friction is responsible for energy dissipation. When two surfaces slide or roll against each other, friction converts mechanical energy into heat energy, dissipating it to the surroundings. This energy loss due to friction is often undesirable and needs to be minimized in various applications to improve efficiency and reduce wear and tear.
