A 230 kg steel crate is being pushed along a cement floor. The force of friction is 480 N to the left and the applied force is 1860 N to the right. What is the acceleration of the crate? (Hint: remember to find net force first)

a=6.00 m/s2
a=28.1 m/s2
a=8.10 m/s2
a=6.0 m/s2

1. net force is ... 1860 - 480

the acceleration is the net force divided by the mass

significant figures appear to be a factor (Hint: there are two)
