So its normal for you to just simply state your uninformed opinion
on subject matter.
even if you havent read the information presented , you automatically
follow with your opinion of the information that you havent read.

given that I was refering to the frictionless environment of zero g
what you posted has pretty much confirmed my assessment of your cognitive abilities
and your mechanical abilities including your knowledge of mechanics.

you used a boat in water -- low friction -- when I was refering to a mass
sitting on the ground -- on earth.

ie...the resistance to movement of a object sitting on earth due to gravity.

the only difference between a mass on earth and a mass in zero g is

it still has the same mass.
so it requires the same force.

do you think you can push a 100 kg mass on earth with a 1 kg force.

I suppose you read the last line of what I posted above and constructed
your anology from that single line.
as you have already informed us that you dont fully read information you
just breeze through it.

Brilliant not even slightly smart , and common among naysayers.
