The Force of Friction CHECK YOUR ANSWER When Nellie pushes a crate across a factory floor at an increasing speed , the amount of friction between the crate and the floor is A. less than Nellie's push. B. equal to Nellie's push. C. equal and opposite to Nellie's push. D. greater than Nellie's push. Explanation: The increasing speed indicates a net force greater than zero. The crate is not in equilibrium.
