1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If a 25kg mass has a constant velocity of 5m/s, when pushed horizontally by a 5 N force, what amount of resistance force is present?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm pretty sure the velocity is irrelevant, ... I made a diagram but that didn't help much. I'm not sure exactly what it is asking, aka I don't know what resistance force is or how to find it. I'm not sure where to start so any help would be appreciated!!!
