Question statement from David Morin's Classical Mechanics :
The friction force from the ground on the tires is what causes the car to slow down. But this force does no work on the car, because the ground isn’t moving.
I couldn't get the point! The ground is applying frictional force on car and it is moving in opposite direction to the car i.e the work done by the ground should be negative (is what I had thought).
Furthermore, the earth doesn't move either when it exerts gravitational force on the object to do work.
Could someone clarify this please?
