d) 15 kg

Two cars the same size and shape, but weighing different amounts, were both pushed over the edge of ramps of the same length and angle. Car A weighs 1 ton; car B weighs 2 tons.
a) Car A will accelerate faster because its lesser mass will be less affected by friction than car B.
b) Gravity will cause both cars to roll at the same acceleration despite their masses.
c) Friction will be the same for both cars, causing them to roll at the same acceleration.
d) Car B will accelerate faster because its greater mass will counteract friction more than car A.

An owl is resting on a branch. Which statement is most accurate?
a) The branch is supporting only half of the owl's weight.

c) The branch is exerting an upward force on the owl.
d) Neither the branch nor the owl is affected by the force of gravity.
