Physics question on energy...
The figure below shows the horizontal forces acting on a car.

Which one of the statements describes the motion of the car? Tick one box.
It will be slowing down.
It will be stationary.
It will have a constant speed.
It will be speeding up.

Thanks and any help will be much appreciated

stationary is just a special case of constant speed

You probably covered Newtons First Law already:

"An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force"

its in a balanced state (800-800=0) but considering it has 800N of force pushing it forwards i doubt its stationairy, so it is moving at a constant speed
