8. A 250-N box is at rest on a frictionless horizotal floor. Then a person shoves the box with a non-zero force of magnitude P. Which statement best describes the relationship betweeen P and the motion of the box after it was shoved?

a. the left arrow, up arrow, and down arrow

b. the up arrow and down arrow

c. the left arrow only

d. none of the arrows

EXPLAIN.

b. the up arrow and down arrow

because f=ma

non zero force here means that there is some force......some force means that it have some acceleration.hence p is directly proportional to motion.

b=the up arrow and down arrow..........................is correct

Im sorry i posted the wrong answer choices the answer choices were these

a.The box will accelerate across the floor at a constant rate that is directly proportional to P.

b.The box will not move when P < 250 N, but otherwise will accelerate at a constant rate that is directly proportional to P.

c.The box will begin moving at a speed that is directly proportional to P, then will gradually slow to a halt.

d.The box will move with constant velocity at a speed that is directly proportional to P.

b.The box will not move when P < 250 N, but otherwise will accelerate at a constant rate that is directly proportional to P.
