A horse pulls on a crate with a 1,000 N force, causing it to move at constant velocity. What is the acceleration of the cart? A 44-kg child steps onto a scale. What is the magnitude of the force that the scale exerts on the child

1. These are two different questions

(1) Constant velocity means zero acceleration.
(2) Weight = M*g = 44*9.8 Newtons
It is the same force that the child exerts on the scale.
