    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A student drags an object across a laboratory table at constant velocity using an applied force of 12 Newtons. Calculate the frictional force

    2. a horizontal force of 15 Newtons pulls a 5 kg block along a horizontal surface. If the force produces an acceleration of 2 m/s(squared), what is the frictional force acting on the block?

    (add FBD)
