Block Friction problem

A block whose weight is 35.0 N rests on a horizontal table. A horizontal force of 41 N is applied to the block. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction are 0.650 and 0.420 N, respectively. Will the block move under the influence of the force, and, if so, what will be the block's acceleration?

m/s^2= ?

Do you want someone here to replace the question mark with an answer, or do you want to know what m/s2 means?

I should point out that PF rules state that we must see some work from you, and we will not give out final solutions to homework problems.

So, what work have you done so far?
