In this problem, we are required to relate the forces and motion.
Newton's second law:
A packing crate slides down an inclined ramp at constant velocity. Thus we can deduce that
A) a frictional force is acting on it
b) a net downward force is acting on it
c) A net upward force is acting on it
d) it is not acted on by appreciable normal force
e) it is not acted on by appreciable gravitational force
