Question:

How can the roots of a function be identified when the function is graphed?

Answer:

The roots of a function can be found by observing where a function crosses the x-axis (where the value of a function is zero).

Question:

Why is it impossible for friction to perform work?

Michael R.
Answer:

Work can only be done if some component of the force acting on an object is in the direction of the distance it has moved (work = force X distance, "X" is cross product. As friction always opposes the direction of motion, the work done by friction is never greater than zero.
