suppose a box is sliding along the floor,and friction is resisting its motion with a force of 160n.how much force do you need to exert to keep the box moving at a constant velocity?

• physics -

Since the bax must move at a constant velocity, the horizontal net force has to be zero, therefore, we need to apply the force =160 N.
