3) A 5.0 kg book is sitting on a table. Which describes the force acting on the book

a. there are no forces acting on the book
b. the force of the table upward is greater than the force of gravity downward
c. the net force on the book is zero
d. kinetic energy counteracts the force of gravity on the book

• physics -

If net force on an object is zero, then it is not accelerating, either at rest, or moving at constant veloicty

NetForce= mass*acceleration
