this is an exam question and i am not sure about my answer:

a man with a mass of 60 kg is a parachutist :

calculate the acceleration if the air resistance is 1200N

this is how i solved it:

we must take the wieght into consideration so his wieght is : w=mG G=approximatly 10ms^-2

60(10)=600N

so 1200-600= 600

600=60a

10=a

please tell me is this right?
