1. A 340 kg rocket sled can be accelerated at a constant rate from rest to 1900 km/h in 2.6 s. What is the magnitude of the required net force?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1. So I tried calculating the acceleration and multiplying it by the mass. For the acceleration I tried dividing 1900km/h by 2.6s and multiplying it by the mass however that did not work.
