(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An adult 68.0kg cheetah can accelerate from rest to 20.1 (45.0mph ) in 2.00 s.

2. Relevant equations

F=MA

Vf=Vi + (a)t

3. The attempt at a solution

Assuming constant acceleration, find the net external force causing this acceleration

i solved for the time using Vf=Vi + (a)t. i got acc=10.05

when i tried plugging in the 10.05 for the acceleration and times the mass it gave me 684N. Its coming up wrong and I dont know where im messing up on
