Mounting fs ext3

I'm trying to find a correct command that will mount a filesystem ext3 the device /dev/sda1 to mount point /mnt/usb but not allow any programs to run from it.

I want to be honest as I've read the forum rules... This is a homework question BUT, i'm generally interested in the correct process and haven't been able to. Just trying to pass a wall that I am at. I completely understand if no one wishes to reply. Thanks!

Read the man pages on the mount command. Its not too hard to understand.

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb -o noexec

Thank you both for the help.... After rereading man pages and online information, sometimes you just start overthinking processes and make the execution too difficult. I tried even taking a step back for a day and worked on other items... Once again, I love working and learing *nix systems and truly appreciate the help!
