how do i solve this problem
The Math Behind the LawHow much force is Mike applying to the 1000 kg car to make it accelerate at a rate of .05 m/s2?

They must be teaching you Newton's Second Law

F = m a

You can probably guess what the F, m and a stand for. The answer will be in Newtons.

I like to think of a Newton as the weight of the meat in a "quarter pounder", after cooking.
