1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Is it possible to have a scenario like this. An object is pushed up a slope and it has no initial speed. When it reaches the top the object's speed is also zero. So it's like work done by push+work done against friction=mgh. It doesnt seem plausible to me. 2. Relevant equations Work done=force X distance moved in the direction of force 3. The attempt at a solution I dont think it's possible as the object has 0 kinetic energy at the end. That means that the applied force can only counter the friction so it shouldn't be able to start moving at all unless it initially has speed already then it would be work done by push+work done against friction+KE=KE+mgh in this case even though numerically is the same it is different as now when there is no net force the object still has velocity so by newton's first law it will continue to move up to the top with a constant speed. The only possible way when the object has no velocity at first is if there is kinetic energy at the end because this means that the object accelerated which means there is net force acting on the object which makes it plausible for it to move. Are these correct? Thanks for the help!
