# How much force is needed to push an object?

**force required to push**the

**object**parallel to the ground is anything greater than the resistive

**force**of friction, which is the normal

**force**m*g times the friction coefficient k. So any

**force**parallel to the surface the

**object**is resting on exceeding m*g*k should be enough to

**push**the

**object**.

Furthermore, how much force is needed to push it up the incline?

You need 660 newtons of **force** to **push** the refrigerator **up** the ramp. In other words, your two friends, who can exert 350 newtons each, are enough for the job.

**force**says

**force**is equal to mass (m) multiplied by acceleration (a). If you have any two of the three variables, you can solve for the third.

**Force**is measured in Newtons (N), mass in kilograms (kg), and acceleration in meters per second squared ( m/s2 ).

Subsequently, one may also ask, how much force does it take to push a car?

Substituting stated values, F = 3,000 pounds x 12.22-feet/sec^2/32.2-feet/sec^2 or 3,000 x 0.3795 = 1,138.5 pounds, representing the dynamic load exerted by the drive-wheel tire treads against the road to accelerate the **car**.

No, a constant **force is needed to keep an object moving** at constant speed. No, a **force is needed to keep an object moving** at constant speed, but it doesn't have to be a constant **force**. Yes, an **object** will **move** at constant speed unless a **force** acts to change its motion.
