Hey I'm not sure how to solve this problem:

An 1840 kg car is moving to the right at a constant velocity of 2.94 m/s.

What's the netforce?

What's the netforce if the car would be moving to the left?

I'm thinking that the net force going right and the net force going left is the same right? I think I have to use the formula Fn=M*A, but I don't know how to find the acceleration without a time period. Can anyone help me?

constant velocity, no acceleration? F=ma, so force is zero.

Oh okay thank you very much.
