You are moving a grocery cart at a constant speed in a straight line down the aisle of a store. For this situation the forces on the cart are
B. balanced, with a net force of zero

You are outside a store, moving a loaded grocery cart down the street on a very steep hill. It is difficult, but you are able to pull back on the handle and keep the cart moving down the street in a straight line and at a constant speed. For this situation the forces on the cart are
B. balanced, with a net force of zero
