 Posted: Fri Sep 25, 2009 1:13 am    Post subject: Mastering Physics HmwK Questions!! PLEASE HELP PROBLEM-You drag a heavy box along a rough horizontal floor by a horizontal rope. 1)Identify the reaction force to the pull of the rope on the box. A..The friction force on the box. B.The box pulls on the rope. C.The normal force on the box. D.The weight of the box 2) Identify the reaction force to the friction force on the box. a)The friction force is a horizontal force applied to the box by the floor.The reaction force is the pull of the box on the rope. b)The friction force is a horizontal force applied to the box by the floor. The reaction force is a horizontal force in the opposite direction applied by the box to the floor. c)The friction force is a horizontal force applied to the box by the floor. The reaction force is a downward force applied by the box to the floor. d)There is no reaction here. 3)Identify the reaction force to the normal force on the box. A)The normal force is an upward force applied by the floor to the box. The reaction force is the pull of the box on the rope. B)There is no reaction here. C)The reaction force is a horizontal force applied by the box to the floor. D)The normal force is an upward force applied by the floor to the box. The reaction force is a downward force applied by the box to the floor. 4)Identify the reaction force to the weight of the box. A)There is no reaction here. B)The weight of the box is a downward force applied to the box by the earth. The reaction force is an upward force applied to the earth by the box. C)The weight of the box is a downward force applied to the box by the earth. The reaction force is a downward force applied to the earth by the box. D)The weight of the box is a downward force applied to the box by the earth. The reaction force is a horizontal force applied by the box to the floor.

Because Us teachers do not like to give answers without the students having attempted them at least once._________________I am a physics teacher that teaches up to year 12.

 Posted: Sun Sep 27, 2009 3:55 pm    Post subject: 1. The box pull on the rope. When you pull on the rope you will feel a resistance. This will be the box "pulling on the rope". Answer B 2.The answer is D. Friction is a force that opposes motion. Hence there cannot be a reaction 3. The normal is the reaction to the weight of the box. The weight cannot be the reaction to the normal answer B 4. Answer seems to be B. But the answer will be that the raction force will be an upward force by the earth on the box Remember there can only be a reaction if there is a force being applied._________________I am a physics teacher that teaches up to year 12.
