A 11 kg bucket of water is raised from a well by a rope. If the upward acceleration of the bucket is 2.4 m/s2, find the force exerted by the rope on the bucket of water.
I thought I was supposed to use F = M x A for this one, but I keep getting the answer wrong. Help please?

You have it, but
net force includes the weight...
F=m(a+g) 
Thank You!! :D
