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?

Force applied, P=200N, force of friction, F=?
As the wooden cabinet is to move across the floor with a constant velocity, no force (f) is spent in accelerating the cabinet, i.e., f=P-F= 0 or F=P = 200N
