Derive an equation for the constant net force acting on an object in terms of the object's mass, its initial velocity, final velocity and time interval during which net force is applied.

Homework Equations


Fnet=ma
a=v2-v1/t

The Attempt at a Solution


Fnet=mass(v2-v1/t)

Is this right? Or are you supposed to simplify it more?
