Describe the motion of the cyclist if:
the resistive force is greater than the driving force.
the driving force is greater than the resistive force.
the driving force has the same magnitude as the resistive force.
Suggest two ways in which the cyclist could reduce the resistive force.
Why does the propulsive force from the car engine will need to be greater than the net force (that causes acceleration)?
For bullet point 1's...
(1) Will the cycle deccelerate or move in the opposite direction?
(2) Will the cycle speed up or simply move?
(3) Will the cycle keep moving in constant speed or stop moving at all?
(4) One way can be reducing the amount of friction. Is there another way?
For bullet point 2...
Is it because of the presence of the resistive forces? So does this make the answer to 1's (3) the second option?
