Complete the sentence: The static frictional force between two surfaces is (never/sometimes/always) less than the normal force. Explain your answer. 2. You want to push a heavy box of books across a rough floor. You know that the maximum value of the coefficient of static friction (m s ) is larger than the maximum value of the coefficient of kinetic friction (m k ). Should you push the box for a short distance, rest, push the box another short distance, and then repeat the process until the box is where you want it, or will it be easier to keep pushing the box across the floor once you get it moving? 3. If the force of friction always opposes the sliding of an object, how then can a frictional force cause an object to increase in speed? SS 4. A solid rectangular block has sides of three different areas. You can choose to rest any of the sides on the floor as you apply a horizontal force to the block. Does the choice of side on the floor affect how hard it is to push the block? Explain your answer. 5. You re trying to press a book against a spot on the wall with your hand. As you get tired, you exert less force, but the book remains in the same spot on the wall. Do each of the following forces increase, decrease, or not change in magnitude when you reduce the force you are applying to the book: (a) weight, (b) normal force, (c) frictional force, and (d) maximum static frictional force? 6. or an object moving in a circle, which of the following quantities are zero over one revolution: (a) displacement, (b) average velocity, (c) average acceleration, (d) instantaneous velocity, and (e) instantaneous centripetal acceleration? 7.

Contrast the forces acting on the water when the bucket is at the lowest point on the circle to when the bucket is at the highest point on the circle. SS 8. An antilock braking system (ABS) prevents wheels from skidding while drivers stomp on the brakes in emergencies. How far will a car with an ABS move before finally stopping, as compared to a car without an ABS? 9. Give two examples of two situations in which the normal force acting on an object is not equal to the object s weight. 10. edical A fluidlike substance called synovial fluid lubricates the surfaces where bones meet in joints, making the coefficient of friction between bones very small. Why is the minimum force required for moving bones in a typical knee joint different for different people, in spite of the fact that their joints have the same coefficient of friction? or simplicity, assume the surfaces in the knee are flat and horizontal. 11.
