(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have a problem. Imagine there is a ball on a carpet, I start to pull the carpet. The mass of the ball is 7 kilograms and the acceleration of the whole thing is 2m/s^2. What is the force with which I am pulling the carpet. Also what is the acceleration of the center of gravity (it is different as the ball is only rolling and not sliding on the carpet).

Thank you for answering.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma^{2}

Jar=Fr

3. The attempt at a solution

I came up with F=14 N and a=1,4ms^{2}but am very unsure of the results.
