Question

Consider a series of motion scenarios. Each scenario is accompanied by a short description and an arrow indicating the instantaneous velocity. Assume that air resistance is negligible in every scenario. The only forces present in each scenario are gravity, surface (or normal) forces, and friction if indicated. help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseindicating the instantaneous velocity.

Step 1

Normal force always acts perpendicular to the surface.

Step 2
• For the block sliding down a frictionless plane, normal force and the component of gravitational force perpendicular to the plane cancels each other. The block moves at a constant speed. Thus, the only force is the force due to the component of gravitational force along the plane.
• For a block in the mid-air, shortly after it is thrown, it is the only under the influence of gravitational force which points directly downwards.
• For the block sliding down a frictionless plane, normal force and the component of gravitational force perpendicular to the plane cancels each other. The block moves at a constant speed. Thus, the only force is the force due to the component of gravitational force along the plane.
• For a block in the mid-air, at the...
