    Newtons second law problem, show all work including units

    Question: How much horizontal net force is required to accelerate a 1000 kg car at 2 m/s^2?

    = (1000kg)(2m/s^2)
    = 2000N

    ya. use the F=ma formula. but remember, all units must be SI units. this is just a general reminder.
