Abstract : The nature of the frictional forces and moments applied to an angular contact bearing ball is examined in terms of slip, pivoting, spin and precession. Experimental methods for determining these quantities are given, together with results which indicate that the ball is retainer-controlled for pivoting, and race-controlled for slip. (Author)
