Answer :

Ball bearings are used in machineries because due to friction, ball bearings change the type of friction experienced by the machines which means the sliding friction is replaced by rolling friction and as we know that rolling friction is always less than sliding friction, so ball bearings are used as they behave as wheels to roll and not to slip.
