    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A car with mass of 2t, from starting point travels a distance of 100m for 10s. How much is the pulling force of the car?

    Which means that:
    m=2t=2000kg
    s=100m
    t=10s

    F-pulling=?

    How to find it? :P

    Newton's second law, says that F = m a, where a is the acceleration (I assume it is taken to be constant).

    How can you find the acceleration from the given data?
