a 5.9 kg bucket of water is raised from a well by a rope.

the acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s^2

if the upward acceleration of the bucket is 4.0 ,\m/s^2, find the force exerted by the rope on the bucket of water. in units of N

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

ok i know that i have two forces.

1. The weight of the bucket which is downward:

2. The force by the rope which should be upward in orderto overcome the weight and gives the bucket an upward acceleation
