### Fridge Solution

By: HallieBoatright, Josh Seiden, Lauren Fitzmeyer, and Henry Menozzi

Fn= 22N

Fnet= .5NW

Fa= 8N

Ff= 7.5N

Starting to Move

Fg= 22N

These Forces are unbalanced because the Fnet is greater than 0 and it is accelerating because it is moving and a non-constant speed.

Fn= 22N

Fnet= 0

Fa= 4.5N

Ff= 4.5N

Constant Speed

Fg= 22N

The brick is balanced because the Fnet is 0 and it is not accelerating because it is moving at a constant speed.

Our modification is a series of colored pencils, spaced out just enough so the frictionless platform that rolls over the pencils can get over without any stopping or falling over.
• We eliminated the friction between the floor and the fridge by using pencils that roll easily.
Modification
Fn= 22N

Fnet= .5NW

Fa= 1N

Ff= .5N

Starting to Move

Fg= 22N

These forces are unbalanced because the Fnet is greater than 0 and they are accelerating because the brick was just overcoming the static friction.

Fnet= 0

Fn= 22N

Ff= .5N

Fa= .5N

Constant Speed

Fg= 22N

The forces are balanced because the Fnet is 0 and it is not accelerating because it is at a constant speed and the forces are balanced.

Yes, our modification was successful. We made our Fa go from 4.5N to about .1N.
• The fridge rolled over 1 meter of colored pencils with ease.
Was Our Modification Successful?
