A man is pushing a cart down a slope. Suddenly the cart starts moving faster and he wants to slow it down. What should he do?


Man can accomplish the following

  • He can start dragging the cart instead of pushing it to resist gravity’s downward force.
  • He can travel the other way by moving very quickly in the direction of motion and attempting to slow down the cart’s speed by applying an opposing force on it.


Gravity is a force that attracts a body towards the centre of the earth, or towards any other physical body having mass. A few examples of gravity at work are:

  • The gases in the sun are held together by gravity.
  • Gravity is responsible for water to rest at the bottom of a glass instead of hovering over at the top of the glass.
