A 29.4 kg box initially at rest is pushed 3.5 m along a rough, horizontal floor with a constant applied horizontal force of 132.853 N. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2 . If the coefficient of friction between box and floor is 0.408, find the work done by the applied force. Answer in units of J.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My understanding that it is asking for the applied force WITHOUT the friction? So just 3.5m * (29.4kg)(9.8m/s^2) = the applied force?
