Hi! Do you guys know where I could get some "frictionless" or nearly "frictionless" bearings? I need some for an experiment where I have to essentially eliminate friction. Thank you for your help.

Answer 1:

Frictionless bearings... I want to say you want something made of (or coated with) teflon. I'm not sure where you would get something like that, though. You could also use oil or some other lubricant to reduce friction, of course, but that wouldn't eliminate it (nothing would, but you get the idea).
