# [Answer] If you push on a crate with a horizontal force of 100 N and it slides at constant velocity what is the magnitude and direction of the frictional force acting on the crate?

###### Answer: The frictional force on the crate is 100 N opposite the direction of motion.

In physics a force is any interaction that when unopposed will change the motion of an object.A force can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from a state of rest) i.e. to accelerate. Force can also be described intuitively as a push or a pull. A force has both magnitude and direction making it a vector quantity.

An inclined plane also known as a ramp is a flat supporting surface tilted at an angle with one end higher than the other used as an aid for raising or lowering a load. The inclined plane is one of the six classical simple machines defined by Renaissance scientists. Inclined planes are widely used to move heavy loads over vertical obstacles; examples vary from a ramp used to load goods …

Buoyancy (/ ˈ b ɔɪ ə n s i ˈ b uː j ə n s i /) or upthrust is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of a partially or fully immersed object. In a column of fluid pressure increases with depth as a result of the weight of the overlying fluid. Thus the pressure at the bottom of a column of fluid is greater than at the top of the column.

The normal force is defined as the net force compressing two parallel surfaces together and its direction is perpendicular to the surfaces. In the simple case of a mass resting on a horizontal surface the only component of the normal force is the force due to gravity where =.In this case the magnitude of the friction force is the product of the mass of the object the acceleration due to …
