Chapter 4, The Laws of Motion C HAPTER 4 Conceptual Problems 1. A crate of weight W is being pushed across a horizontal surface by a force directed at an angle of 20 ° below the horizontal. What is the magnitude of the normal force on the crate? a. It is less than W. b. It equals W. c. It is more than W. d. None of the above since the coefficient of kinetic friction is not given. 2. The net force on an object is in the positive x-direction. Consider the following statements. (i) The object can be moving in the negative x-direction. (ii) The object can be speeding up. (iii)The object can be slowing down. (iv) The object can be moving in the positive y-direction. Which of the statements are true? 3. An object weighs 100 N. If the gravitational constant G were half of what it is currently, what would the weight of the object be? 4. Five boxes, each having weight 100 N, are stacked up. The bottom box is the fifth from the top. What is the magnitude of the normal force upward exerted by the fourth box from the top on the third box from the top? 5. A box of mass m is placed on an incline with angle of inclination θ . The box does not slide. The magnitude of the frictional force in this case is: a. μ s mg sin . θ b. mg cos . θ c. mg sin . θ d. not given. 4.1 Forces 4.2 Newton’s First Law 41

If we know an object is moving at constant velocity, we may assume: a. the net force acting on the object is zero. b. there are no forces acting on the object. c. the object is accelerating. d. the object is losing mass. 3. Which of the following expresses a principle, which was initially stated by Galileo and was later incorporated into Newton’s laws of motion? 4. What condition must apply to a system’s state of motion for it to be regarded as an inertial frame of reference?

### 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.
