Physics

A large crate filled with physics laboratory equipment must be moved up an incline onto a truck.
1. The crate is at rest on the incline. What can you say about the force of friction acting on the crate?
a. The friction force point up the include
b. The friction force point down the include
c. the firction force is 0

2. A physicist attempts to push the crate up the incline. The physicist senses that if he applies slightly more force the crate will move up the incline but cannot muster enough strength to get the motion started. What can you say now about the force of friction acting on the crate?
a. The friction force point up the include
b. The friction force point down the include
c. the firction force is 0

3. he first physicist gets a second physicist to help. They both push on the crate, parallel to the surface of the incline, and it moves at constant speed up the incline. How does the force exerted by the two physicists on the crate compare with the force of friction on the crate?

  1. 1.a (static friction is pushing up on the box to keep it from sliding down the incline)
    2.b (static friction is pushing down on the box to keep him from moving it up the incline)
    ^^friction always pushes the opposite direction of the force acting on the object^^
    3.Fphysisist > Ffriction (they must push with a greater force than friction otherwise the box would stay stationary)
