1.       Friction affects forward motion by repelling or trying to cancel the force which the opposite of its direction. For example, the wheel against the road pavement. 3. Air resistance affect the velocity of a falling object by either interfering with the gravitation force the object is acting on the subject. Hence, these since air assuming that the direction is perpendicular with gravity will result the object to drop sideways or gradually.   4. The friction of the pavement and the air molecules. 5. Since the exerted force of the human is greater the object moves until the frictional force cancel itself or produce a net force both the force of the chair, gravity and friction. 6. Third law of motion which states that the force exerted of A to B, B will exert the same force that was exerted by A leaving the gravitational force canceled.
