Can anyone help me on two problems of my hw?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) A tow rope is used to pull a 1050-kg along a level road, initially accelerating it from rest at 1.50m/s^2 for a duration of 12.0seconds. Calculate the magnitude of the tension force in the rope during this acceleration.(ignore friction in the problem)

My answer was 394N but i want to make sure if that was correct.

2) As a stoplight is approached, the person riding in the towed car applies the brakes and brings it to a stop in an additional 5.00s. Calculate the magnitude of the force of the brakes on the car, assuming the brakes are applied evenly so that the deceleration is constant.
