"An experimental rocket sled can be accelerated at a constant rate from rest to 1600 km/hr in 1.8 s. What is the magnitude of the required net force if the sled has a mass of 500 kg?"(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know I have to use

[sum of the] F = ma

and i was trying

= 500 x 1600,

but I'm sure there's something else I have to do to get the right answer, since this isn't working..
