Physics - frictional force

Pushing a grocery cart with a force of 95N applied at an angle of 35deg own from the horizontal, makes the cart travel at a constant speed of 1.2m/s. What is the frictional force acting on the cart?

1. well, the pushing force is 95cos35, at constant speed, that is the fricional force.

a shopper in a supermarket pushes a cart with a force of 35 n directed at an angle of 25 downward from the horizontal. the force is just sufficient to over come the various frictional force, so the cart moves at constant speed.
