# physics - forces

A person pushes a 16.0 kg lawn mower at constant speed with a force of 70.0 N directed along the handle, which is at an angle of è = 45.0° to the horizontal. Calculate the force the person must exert on the lawn mower to accelerate it from rest to 1.2 m/s in 2.0 seconds (assuming the same retarding force which is 70cos45).
