1. A student pushes horizontally on a book with a force of 2 N, which causes the book to slide at a constant velocity. What is the force of friction on the book?

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    The horizontal forces are equal in size and opposite in direction. They are balanced, so the horizontal resultant force is zero. This means that there is no horizontal acceleration just a horizontal constant speed. If a submarine is not moving horizontally, then there are no horizontal forces.

    I hope it helps.
