Regards to kinetic friction

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    in the question you're having to solve for this.

    A force is applied at a angle of 30 degrees on a object that weighs 12kg that is also moving at a constant velocity. kinetic friction is equal to .70
    i am confused on how to find the Force applied to achieve a constant velocity
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    If it's constant velocity, what's the acceleration? What is the relationship between acceleration and net force?

    It doesnt give it's acceleration

    Yes it does. What do you think constant velocity means?

    what i mean is that it doesnt give its acceleration as far as numbers wise

    OMG sorry i just had a brain fart it's zero thats how working on alot of things at once can confuse yourself it's acceleration is 0.
