Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Brigid on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 at 10:29pm.

I'm having a problem understanding a question. "If a man exerts a 200N force while pushing a crate 5.0 m across a floor against a frictional resistance of 40N, how much energy was expended by the person pushing?" I can figure out work done on the box and those sorts of questions but I don't get what is meant by how much energy is the man expending.
