a force accelerates a car of mass 1240 kg at 2 km/hr. what is the force?


i need help how do you get the acceleration? i know f=ma but what's the a? or is this the wrong equation?

  1. Damon

    You have a typo here somewhere

    acceleration is in units of distance/time squared

    in other words, do you really mean km/hr^2 ?

    or do you end up at 2 km/hr after some given time?

    im not sure that was exactly what the question said.
