an airplane has a mass of 3.1*10^4kg and takes off under the influence of a constant net force of 3.7*10^4N. what is the net force that acts on the plane's 78-kg pilot?

can anyone give me some hints to do this?THX A LOT!

  1. The net force on the pilot is just the familiar f=ma. The mass of the pilot is given. The acceleration of the pilot should be the same as the acceleration of the plane. The forumula f=ma can be rearranged to a=f/m. f and m are given for the plane. Solve for the acceleration of the plane, and then use that to find the net force on the pilot.
