A 4kg object traveling at 40m/s^2
Travelling at 40m/s, right?
along the x axis at t=1 is influenced by a constant force of 20N.
Which direction does the force act?

Travelling at 40m/s, right?

Which direction does the force act?
Its acceleration is 40 m/s^2 at t=1 and its moving to the right.

The OP says the 4 kg object is traveling at 40 m/s^2. Usually, the velocity of an object is given, not its acceleration. Is this how the problem was originally specified? 'Traveling' implies velocity, otherwise, one would say an object is accelerating at X m/s^2.

Yes, I meant accelerating, I apologize. I "made" this problem to see what I could do given the acceleration
