What makes strong grip over the glass!

It’s easier to find people facing difficulty in holding a glass. This happens when your fingers take time to adapt to what they touch. Recently the researchers showed that to develop a perfect grip on glass cup or Smartphone screen, your fingers would take 20 minutes to form the grip.

This contradicts the work of rubber as one can easily form better grip over rubber material. Have you ever wondered why this happens and what logic of physics behind this?

Basic reason

A well-known fact prevails that glasses are all slippery material. Then how could a person find a grip on it? All credit goes to the attractive forces, which the molecule of the glass and your finger develops in between.
More the number of frictions the more surface of contact develops. As per the research made by France and UK researchers, a fact was developed that your skin can easily develop grip over a slippery surface. But how a person develops this grip? That’s quite simple by increasing the surface of contact of skin with the object.

What if sweat runs out?

• Even after sweating you would never fail at developing a strong grip on the glass. Though adaption takes a bit time. The surface of your skin contains ridges that usually make holding rubber material easier but simultaneously they obstruct while holding a glass.

• While coming in contact with such smooth surfaces your skin, fortunately, develops sweat, which softens your skin. Slowly the keratin present in your skin gets softer.

• At last your ridges smoothen up and make you hold the glass material with all skin touch.
As per the recent newspaper, researchers wanted to shed light on this topic, But this took a bit time depending on the number of factors used to the weight of the object. How fast the object tested and force used for it. But while trying the same with rubber results turned various, while performing it with rubber it turned difficult for them to capture it on phone just for the seconds of actions.

What were the results?

Over periods of research, the answer is just your skin. What it feels and how your skin reacts to objects sensed. But in case of that haptic screen designing of your touch phones, a simulation or by ultrasonic vibration would be added for better grip and feel of roughness. With such minute sensational changes slowly your skin develops variant sensation.
