Susan was conducting an experiment to examine the distance a box travels on different surfaces. She slides the box exerting a force of 5N across a wooden surface. She slides the same box across a surface of ice with the exact same force. The box slides much farther on the icy surface before coming to rest. What is likely explanation of this?

1. The wooden surface applies a greater force to the box than does the ice, which slows the box to a stop in a shorter distance.

2 The ice applies a greater force to the box than does the wooden surface, which keeps the box moving for a greater distance.

3 The wooden surface applies a smaller force to the box than does the ice, increasing the speed of the box so that it travels a greater distance.

4 The ice applies a smaller force to the box than does the wooden surface, which slows the box to a stop in a shorter distance on ice.
