Homework Help: F=ma help

  1. Feb 22, 2004 #1
    I know it is a relitivly simple problem, I am just having trouble setting up the problem. Here it is..

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

    Thanks for any tips.

    Steven
