Much much force is needed to push a container with wheels that weighs 250 pounds

  • physics -

    You need to provide more information

    Is it accelerating? At what rate?
    Is it uphill? How steep?
    is there friction? What coefficient?

    There probably is negligible friction, since there are wheels.
