Using a horizontal force of 200 N, we intend to move a wooden cabinet across a floor at constant velocity. What is the frictional force that will be exerted on the cabinet?

Answer :

Since, a horizontal force of 200N is used to move a wooden cabinet, thus a friction force of 200N will be exerted on the cabinet. Because according to third law of motion, an equal magnitude of force will be applied in the opposite direction.
