Which of the following statements is true about
external force and displacement?
a) If an external force is applied in the direction of an
object's displacement, the object gains more
potential to do something.
b) If an external force is applied against the direction
of an object's displacement, the object's potential
to do something decreases.
c) If an external force is applied perpendicular to an
object's displacement, the object's potential to do
something is unchanged.
d) All of the above are correct.

a)
b)
c)
d)
Force = mx + 0, where m is the
slope.

there is no work done by friction.
c) Our model for friction leads to energy (evidenced
by heat) that we cannot incorporate through work
done by friction.
d) All of the above are correct.
