(Indicates a review question, which means it requires only a basic understanding of the material to answer. Questions without this designation typically require integrating or extending the concepts presented thus far.)

A person places a book on the roof of a car and drives off without remembering to remove it. As the book and the car move down a street at a stead speed. two horizontal forces are acting on together the hook. What are they?

To determine

The horizontal forces acting on a book, placed on top of a car in motion.

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

A book is placed on the top of a car and then the car is set in motion.

The figure above shows the free body diagram of all the forces acting on the book.

The reaction (r) is the force acting on the book against the direction of motion. The direction of this force is opposite to that of the motion of the car in accordance with Newton’s laws of motion
