Using a horizontal force  200N, we intend to move a wooden cabinet across a floor at constant velocity. What is the frictional force that will be exerted on the cabinet?

The cabinet will move with constant velocity only when the net force on it is zero . Therefore , force of friction on the cabinet =200 N, in a direction opposite to the direction of motion of the cabinet.
