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?

### Leedle

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

Yes it does! What does constant velocity mean??

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.

Happens to us all. Have a good day.
