Problem 14E

If you exert a horizontal force of 200 N to slide a crate across a factory floor at constant velocity, how much friction is exerted by the floor on the crate? Is the force of friction equal and oppositely directed to your 200-N push? If the force of friction isn’t the reaction force to your push, what is?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

The friction on the crate is 200 N, which cancels your 200 N push on the crate to yield the zero net force that accounts for the constant velocity ( zero acceleration). Although the friction force is equal and oppositely directed to the applied force, the two don’t make an action reaction pair of forces. The frictional force...
