The force required to produce the acceleration is given by Newton's second law F=ma.

If

m is mass in kg,

a is acceleration in m/s²

then force F is in newtons.

To this force must be addded the frictional force 740 N to overcome friction.

Note: the force unit newton is written in lower case when written in full, and with a capital letter N when abbreviated. This is true for other proper name units, such as Ampere, Pascal, etc.
