1. A worker pushes horizontally on a 2000 N refrigerator on a kitchen floor with a force of 25 N. Which statement is the most accurate about the situation?
A. If the refrigerator moves forward, this person feels it pushing back with less than 25 N.
B. The person feels a 25 N push from the refrigerator only if it does not move.
C. The person always feels a 25 N push from the refrigerator.
D. The person feels a 2000 N push from the refrigerator.

Help Please.

  1. If the refrigerator moves forward, this person feels it pushing back with less than 25 N. (while it is accelerating). If it is in constant speed, the refigerator is exactly pushing back with 25N.
