A box of mass m is pushed up an incline under the inﬂuence of friction. The angle of the incline with the horizontal is 6 and the box is pushed in the upward direction parallel to the incline. Draw a freewbody diagram of the box with all of the applied forces clearly labeled (use Fp for the pushing force, fk for the force of friction, etc). in" Nani lame 2. Answer T (for true) or F (for false) in the underlined spaces provided. a) 2/ The applied force of a spring is always negative or zero. b) T The net force on an object in free—fall (no air resistance) is always constant. c) K Uniform circular motion requires the application of a constant force. (1) The potential energy stored in a spring is always positive or zero. e) F A stationary object has no forces acting on it. E) The change in an ob ject’s kinetic energy is always equal to the total work done on the object.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
