    if an object is on an inclined plane and the plane is rough then there'll be a reaction force, resistive force and a coefficient of friction.

    if the plane is smooth then is the reaction and resistive force included or not?

    If it is smooth then the coefficient of friction is 0
    So the resitive force of the plane is zero
    However there is always a reaction force as Newton law states every action force has an equal and opposite reaction force.

    Reaction force will be there but no resistive frictional force.

    okay thanks a lot, i was doubting my own knowledge xD

    .....

    if an object is on an inclined plane and the plane is rough then there'll be a NORMAL reaction force, a resistive force say air resistance if moving, FRICTION, its weight and any (optional) external force the question may have ...if the plane is smooth then is the only thing missing is friction

    resistive means ground friction as well as other resistances ...

    What u mean? Fr=ùR and ù=0 so Fr=0

    okay so friction applies whether the plane is rough or smooth?

    but i thought the definition of smooth meant not friction?

    Yes I should have made it more clear perhaps. I was referring to specifically the frictional force.

    as far as you are concerned smooth means ground friction is not present

    so when plane is smooth no friction or reaction force?

    no ground friction !

    no ground friction !
    is there a difference between ground friction and friction? (besides the fact that one of them specifies ground in front of it)

    Lol only losers refer to other resistive forces as friction.

    no difference
    so only the reaction force applies when the plane is smooth? no friction
