2. According to Newton's second law, which certainly applies here,

F = M a

They told you what the mass (M) and acceleration (a) are.

The answer will be in Newtons.

A 0.30kg lab cart is observed to accelerate twice as fast as a 0.60kg cart. Does that mean that the net force on the more massive cart is twice as large as the force on the smaller cart? Explain.
