Q4) The figure shows four situations in which a force acts on a box while the box slides rightward a distance d across a frictionless floor. The magnitudes of the forces are identical; their orientations are as shown. Rank the situations according to the work done on the box during the displacement, from most positive to most negative. 1) d, c, b, a 2) a, b, c, d 3) a, c, d, b 4) c, d, b, a 5) none of the above Q5) Can the normal force ever do nonzero work on an object? 1) yes 2) no Q6) A rock of mass m is twirled on a string in a horizontal plane.
