APPLICATIONS If a man is trying to move a 100 lb crate, how large a force F must he exert to start moving the crate? What factors influence how large this force must be to start moving the crate? If the crate starts moving, is there acceleration present? What would you have to know before you could find these answers?

APPLICATIONS (continued) If the dragster is traveling with a known velocity and the magnitude of the opposing drag force at any instant is given as a function of velocity, can we determine the time and distance required for dragster to come to a stop if its engine is shut off? How ? Objects that move in air (or other fluid) have a drag force acting on them. This drag force is a function of velocity.
