Unformatted text preview: they maintain the same speed, because of newtons second law. Forces are different.-equilibrium o the vector sum of forces acting on a body in equilibrium is zero o this is equivalent to three independent component equations therefore we can solve for three unknowns o Answer to quiz about block on ramp with friction is c)...
