b) friction working against an object
c) work exerted on an object
d) distance an object travels

What effect can a simple machine have when used to move an object?
a) A simple machine reduces the amount of force required to move an object by increasing the distance the object moves.
b) A simple machine reduces the amount of work required to move an object by increasing the force on the object.
c) A simple machine reduces the amount of energy required to move an object by increasing the work on the object.
d) A simple machine reduces the amount of power required to move an object by increasing the distance the object moves.

The advantage of using an inclined plane is to reduce the
a) force needed to lift the heavy objects
b) time needed to load many objects
c) work being done while moving objects
d) amount of friction affecting the objects

What is a disadvantage of using an inclined plane to left a heavy object?
a) the object must be moved a greater distance
b) it takes less effort to move the object
c) many objects are difficult to lift straight up
d) heavy objects usually take up more space

Which of the following decreases when an object is moved using an inclined plane?
a) the force needed to move the object
b) the distance the object moves
c) the pull of gravity on the object
d) the amount of space the object takes up

An inclined plane reduces the amount of force needed to move an object by
a) increasing the distance the object moves
b) decreasing the pull of gravity on the object
c) reversing the direction the object is moved
d) transferring more of the force to the object

How could students find out whether a short ramp or a long ramp would require less force to use? They could measure the amount of force it takes to move...
a) an object up two ramps with the same height, but different lengths
b) an object up two ramps with equal heights and equal lengths
c) an object up two ramps with the same length, but different heights
d) one object up a ramp and a larger object up the same ramp

50 Newtons of force was used to move a box a distance of 12 meters. How much work was done on the box?

b) slide it across the table
c) open it to the middle page
d) dropping it to the floor

When would a skateboarder have the most potential energy?
a) at the top of the ramp
b) while rolling down the ramp
c) while moving up the ramp
