Step 1

Given,

Step 2

As given in the question that friction is very low so we can neglect the friction then the net work done on the box is done by force applied by man on the block,

Step 3

As the given system is open system where both mass and energy can be transferred from system to surrounding, but in given situation there is constant temperature in entire proce...
