    No. Friction is a force, not an energy.

    Friction can be interpreted as molecular collision between materials. when collision occurs energy is transferred between the two materials ,hence a division of energy.

    Disk brakes convert kinetic energy into heat energy with friction. Friction makes meteors (shooting stars) visible. Boulders on cliffs have potential energy. Energy can be thought of as power integrated over time.

    No. Radiant energy has little to do with friction.

    friction causes heat, which is a form of energy.

    but there are many other forms of energy.
