mass of can .298 kg lenght of table 1.257 m height of elev .05m

time trial 1 3.50 sec 2 4.22 sec 3 4.23 sec

length of table

determine the force required to accelerate the can along the table. avg speed is .36 m/s final speed is .72 m/s acceleration is 1.257m/3.98 s = .32 m/s how do i find accelerating force

2. Relevant equations

i found acceleration how to i find accelerating force ? is the 9.80 m/s come into play somewhere?

3. The attempt at a solution
