The frictional force is parallel to the surface, opposing the motion. So, it would be pointing down the slope, if the drawing in the arrow represents the motion.

imron07Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, the arrow represent the motion. But ummm, i'm not sure the frictional force is parallel to the surface, opposing the motion. Just like when we walk, the frictional force is in the same direction as our motion....

No, it's not. The friction always opposes motion.

the friction force reduces the acceleration of the object. When you are walking, the friction between your shoe/foot and the ground keeps your foot from sliding forward indefinitely.

@BTaylor yes, it oppose the motion, but the motion of our shoes.

the a point is moving in rotation direction so frictions force oppose it

the friction is opposite to the moviment of weel
 one year ago

imron07Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yeah, i understand your explanation. But if we apply Newton's law, should we pick that direction too for friction to find system acceleration?

the friction is opposite to the moviment of POINT OF CONTACT

Shouldn't \(mg\sin{\alpha}\) is in opposite direction with friction now?
 one year ago

RaphaelFilgueirasBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes it is opposite

imron07Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@RaphaelFilgueiras yes that's what I mean :)

NO it is coincident with mg sin alpha : here is why (let me finish pls

And when wheel is freely rolling the friction acts BACK on it

so your car never will rise the ramp!!!

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@RaphaelFilgueiras you are wrong : in his picture there are NO OTHER forces. The cart is only rolling up BY INERTIA and of course slows eventually. This is different from motorized climbing up !!!

the car is moving up

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The point of contact is moving a weebit slower than the surface  so the surface ACCELERATES it !

@Mikael : So only when the engine turned on, friction will directed upward?
 one year ago

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the vector is velocity. And please admit that I am right @RaphaelFilgueiras
 one year ago

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Again I clarify : When the wheel is free it serves as a frictionconduit from the surface to cart. When the motor is working the opposite: the wheel transfers torque from cart to surface

It is a delicate but DRAMATIC CHANGE
 one year ago

imron07Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well, i understand both of your opinion. But i agree with @Mikael . If the vector I draw is Force, would something change (engine on)?

Of course  all is opposite
 one year ago

RaphaelFilgueirasBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they are opposite but mg is greater than f
 one year ago

RaphaelFilgueirasBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it will stop,and then the friction and mg will be in same direction

The last remark of Raf is WRONG (again!)_
 one year ago

imron07Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You mean friction is downward even if the tire's working to move the car upward too?
 one year ago

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Friction is UPWARD when the tire PUSHES the surface (working) and downward when the SURFACE pushes the tire

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Both of you should imagine a tiny (really tiny) velocity difference betwee Contact point and surface. It has OPPOSITE directions in these opposite cases !

imron07Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@Mikael can you draw it please, (when engine turned on, and another force pull the car too).
 one year ago

MikaelBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
When wheel PUSHES it is faster downward  so frict is UPWARD

Okay, I understand now. Thanks @RaphaelFilgueiras & @Mikael !

You see the friction force is OPPOSITE to the RELATIVE VELOCITY\[V_{contact}  V_{\text{surface velocity relative \to wheel's center}}\]

Yeah, that's what in my mind :D
