## Homework Statement

You are pushing a filing cabinet across a rough floor (μk = 0.41) in a straight line at a constant speed. Which of the following statements about the magnitudes of the forces acting on the filing cabinet are correct?

(T/F)the force that you exert on the filing cabinet will be equal to the frictional force on the cabinet

(T/F) the force that you exert on the filing cabinet will be more than the frictional force on the cabinet

(T/F)if you exerted twice the force, the cabinet would slide at a constant speed that is twice the original value

(T/F) the force that you exert on the filing cabinet will be more than its weight

(T/F)the force that you exert on the filing cabinet will be less than its weight

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

1. True I assume because it's at a constant speed

2. False I assume because then it would be accelerating?

3. False, I assume it would just be moving faster and accelerating not at constant speed

4. No idea

5. No idea

Help please, some explanations too would be great. I really appreciate it.
