A box weighs 2000N and is accelerated uniformly over a horizontal surface at a rate of 8 m/s^2. The opposing force of friction between the box and the surface is 27.4 ..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How much force would be required to lift the box upward with an acceleration of 8 m/s^2?

I know that the answer is 3,630N .. but I'm not sure how to get there?
