Draw the free body diagram for the box when is is being pulled by the rope across a rough surface at a constant velocity.

3

A box is sliding across a rough textured floor. Draw what you think the free body diagram would look like. (The term "rough surface" is geek speak telling you to account for the frictional force.)

4

Draw the free body diagram for the box along the incline this incline is "perfectly smooth." The box is accelerating down the incline even though the rope is taught. (The term "perfeclty smooth" or "smooth" is geek speak telling you that the surface is frictionless.)

5

What must you have if you have a normal force? Hint

6 What must you have if you have a tension force? Hint
7 What must you have if you have a weight? Hint
8 Draw a free body diagram of all the forces acting on the box if it is not moving but the rope is being pulled gently.
  Box being pulled to the right
9 If a body is accelerating, then what force must be indicated on the free body diagram?
