A force is acting on each of the objects in the diagram.
What can be concluded about these forces?
A They are the same because they point toward the objects.
B They are the same because they have the same magnitude.
C They are different because they have different magnitudes.
D They are different because they have different directions.
Two students are pushing a cart, as shown.
The cart will move as if it were acted on by a single force with a magnitude of:
A 50 N.
B 150 N.
C 200 N.
D 350 N
A ball is dropped from the top of a tall building. As the ball falls, the upward force of air resistance becomes equal to the downward pull of gravity.
When these two forces become equal in magnitude, the ball will:
A flatten due to the forces.
B fall at a constant speed.
C continue to speed up.
D slow to a stop.
Four forces are acting on a box, as shown below.
This box will increase in speed
A downward and to the left.
B downward and to the right.
C upward and to the left.
D upward and to the right.

B gravel, because friction will be high
C plastic, because friction will be low
D sandpaper, because friction will be low
A magnet is placed near a pile of steel paper clips. Which will most likely occur?
A The magnet will provide a balanced force, causing the paper clips to spin in circles.
B The magnet will provide an unbalanced force, keeping the paper clips stationary.
C The magnet will provide a balanced force, pushing the paper clips away from it.
D The magnet will provide an unbalanced force, pulling the paper clips toward
Letters A, B, C, and D in the diagram below represent four positions of the Moon in its orbit around Earth.
