the coefficient of kinetic friction between a couch and the floor is 0.81. If the couch has a mass of 71kg and you push it with force of 650N, what is the net force on the couch as it slides?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the friction force= KE*mass of object*gravity

Fforce=0.81*71*9.8

friction=563.598N

on the horizontal direction, total force=650-friction

=(650-563.598)N

=86.402 N is the net force

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
