The lubrication system is a science which deals with the reduction of friction between two interacting surfaces by applying lubricants between them. It is a method used to assist the continuous, smooth, and robust operation of rotating machinery parts like bearings, gears, dies, pumps, spindles, cables, chains, rails, and etc.

1. Define lubrication and its functions
2. Explain different types of lubricants
3. Identify the importance of using additives with lubricants
4. Describe different lubrication principles
