  • Q5
    Zoey pulled an empty cart to the library. When she leaves the library, the cart is full of books. How does the force of friction on the cart change?
    The force of friction increases because the force of gravity decreases.
    The force of friction decreases because there is more air pressure.
    The force of friction increases because there is more mass.
    The force of friction stays the same because Maria is still pulling the cart with the same force.

    A truck is traveling 70 mph with a heavy load in its trailer. After the truck is unloaded, it again travels 70 mph. Which best explains how the force acting on the truck changed after the truck was unloaded?
    A larger force was needed to move the truck because it had less mass.
    A larger force was needed to move the truck because there was more friction.
    A smaller force was needed to move the truck because it had less mass.
    A smaller force was needed to move the truck because there was less friction.
