This activity contains 25 questions.

## Two men, Joel and Jerry, push against a wall. Jerry stops after 10 min, while Joel is able to push for 5 min longer. Compare the work against the wall they each do.

 Joel does 50% more work than Jerry. Jerry does 50% more work than Joel. Joel does 75% more work than Jerry. Neither of them do any work.

A 4-kg mass moving with speed 2 m/s, and a 2-kg mass moving with a speed of 4 m/s, are gliding over a horizontal frictionless surface. Both objects encounter the same horizontal force, which directly opposes their motion, and are brought to rest by it. Which statement best describes their respective stopping distances?

 The 4-kg mass travels twice as far as the 2-kg mass before stopping. The 2-kg mass travels twice as far as the 4-kg mass before stopping. Both masses travel the same distance before stopping. The 2 kg mass travels greater than twice as far.

## A 4-kg mass moving with speed 2 m/s and, an otherwise identical, 2-kg mass moving with a speed of 4 m/s, are gliding over a horizontal surface with friction and are brought to rest by it. Which statement best describes their respective stopping distances?

 The 4-kg mass travels twice as far as the 2-kg mass before stopping. The 2-kg mass travels twice as far as the 4-kg mass before stopping. Both masses travel the same distance before stopping. The 2-kg mass travels greater than twice as far.

 Don't have a clue. Greater than zero. Zero. Can not be calculated.

## Two cars, starting from rest at the same place, travel by different routes to the same destination. One of the cars passes the other as they drive through it. Which of the following statements will be true?

 The work done by friction during the trip was the same for both. The total work done on both is the same. The work done by gravity is the same on both. The work done by gravity on both is positive.

## The work done by friction, f,

 equals -fd, where d is the total distance moved. equals fd, where d is the total distance. can't easily be calculated because it depends on the angle between f and d. can't easily be calculated.
