How hard would you have to push a snow shovel over the sidewalk if you wanted to maintain a constant velocity if the shovel had a mass of 12 kg and the coefficient of friction between the sidewalk and the shovel was 0.33?

  • physics -

    you have to push to equal friction.

    forcefriction=mu*mg
