This number ranges between 0 and 100, and determines this object's collision priority. When two objects collide, the Physics system looks at this number to decide which object must get out of the other object's way. For example, if a moving block with mass=100 hits a character with mass=50, the block will continue moving on its original course while the character will be pushed away from the collision. (The default value is 75.)

Surface Friction

This entry is a coefficient, ranging from 0.0 to 1.0, which determines the object's "slipperiness". A value of 0.0 will give a totally frictionless surface, while 1.0 results in Virtual Velcro. (The default value is 0.95.)
