## Homework Statement

Calculate the engine thrust required to produce an acceleration of 4 m/s^-2 in a jet of mass 800 kg as it takes off along the runway. The air resistance is 500 N

Appreciate if anyone can check if I have used the correct equation, and my answer.

## Homework Equations

F - R = ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

F - R = 800 x 4

F - 500 = 3200

Thrust (F) = 3700 N
