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

While two forces act on it, a particle is to move at the constant velocityv= (3 m/s)i- (4 m/s)j. One of the forces isF1= (2N)i+ (-6N)j. What is the other force?

2. Relevant equations

Fnet= ma

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, I'm really just wanting a hint. I know that the acceleration is zero because the velocity is constant. So how do I use velocity to find the second force? Surely I'm missing something fundamental here. Once again, just a hint would be nice.
