What forces does a mover need to apply in order to keep the box moving to the right at 1 m/s

  • science -

    there's a lot unsaid here.

    Is he on a ramp? up or down?
    Is there friction?
    Are there stairs?
    Is he on a space station?
    Is there someone pushing back?

    try to pin down the scenario just a bit, ok?
