A wagon with a weight of 300 N is accelerated across a level surface at .5 m/s2. What net force acts on the wagon? (g=9.81 m/s2)

2. Relevant equations

f=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

well the answer is 15 N, but I don't know how to get there. I need a little guide, because I have no clue on what to do.

do I have to convert the 300 N into something else? eek please help me out, I'm really really lost.
