A Hurricane Katrina rescue helicopter was seen carrying a heavy bag of sand (1194.0 kg) to place on one of the broken levees. Kimberly, a KSU student figured that the acceleration of the sand bag then was 1.1 m/s2 in the downward direction. What is in Newtons the weight of the sand bag? (Don't include units in the answer and use the upward direction as positive.)
