Help me out in friction numerical

  1. Nov 10, 2011 #1
    A worker pushes 25Kg crate a distance of 5m along a level floor at constant velocity by pushing horizontally on it. The coefficient of kinetic frication between the crate and the floor is 0.23.

    (a) What magnitude of force must the worker apply?
    (b) How much work is done on the crate by this force?
    (c) How much work is done on the crate by frication?
    (d) How much work is done on the crate by normal force?
    (e) How much work is done on the crate by the gravity?
    (f) What is the total work done on the crate?

    calculate the WEIGHT of the crate (downwards force).
    Use the coeff of friction to calculate the force needed to push the crate.......go from there
