1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A constant acceleration forces "Force(a)" pushes a 2.kg FedEX package across a frictionless floor on which an xy coordinate system has been drawn. the figure below gives the packag's x and y velocity components versus time. What are the (a) magnitude and (b) the direction of the "Force(a)" The Y acceleration graphs shows that the Vy(m/s) from 2 to -13 it takes over 3 seconds. the X acceleration graphs shows that the Vx(m/s) from 2 to11 it takes over 3 seconds

2. Relevant equations
Acceleration = Velocity/time
F = mg
F= ma
3. The attempt at a solution
the following information are given; mass=2.kg, Y-acceleration = 5m/s^2, and X acceleration = 3m/s^2. If I could find the F in y direction, then i might able to find the F in x-direction. Basically, i am clueless.

I can't understand the question. Can you show the graphic or explain what it shows more clearly?
