How do you find acceleration and Fnet for a diagram containing only one object with a mass, like say 10kg, and two arrows going in the opposite directions(horizontally) with thier tips touching each side of the object. **NOTE: there are no other numbers other than the mass.

If the arrows are in the opposite direction, then they subtract. Vectors are directed numbers. A force East is a negative force West.
