I was wondering if someone could help explain this. I dont understand how to calculate the friction force...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So heres the question I'm working on

You are applying a 400-newton force to a freezer full of chocolate chip ice cream in an attempt to move it across the basement. It will not budge. The weight of the freezer (including ice cream) is 1000 N. The friction force exerted by the floor on the freezer is

a. 400 N

b. greater than 400 N but less than 1000 N

c. 1000 N

d. greater than 1000 N

thanks
