(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rope is pulling up a 1200 Kg car. The upwards acceleration is 0.8 m/s^{2}. How much tension should the rope be able to withstand?

2. Relevant equations

Net force is equal to mass x acceleration.

3. The attempt at a solution

So would it just be 1200 Kg x 0.8 m/s^{2}which is 960 Newtons?
