    The friction force is
    M*g*Uk
    IF the desk is moving. Uk is the kinetic friction coefficent in this case.

    The problem should have told you if the desk is moving, and whether the coefficient of friction is static or kinetic.

    If the desk is not moving, the applied force equals the friction force.
