You pull a short refrigerator with a constant force across a greased (frictionless) floor, either with horizontal (case 1) or with tilted upward at an angle 38° (case 2). (a) What is the ratio of the refrigerator's speed in case 2 to its speed in case 1 if you pull for a certain time t? (b) What is this ratio if you pull for a certain distance d?
