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.
