# Question #b7a84

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The special case of Newton's second law of motion relates resultant force and acceleration:

The question specifies that the acceleration is uniform, so we can use the equations of uniform acceleration to determine the value of

**Stage 1: Determine which "suvat" equation to use. **

List all values we know:

So we need.to use the equation that does not have

Rearrange for the unknown,

**Stage 2 : Use that acceleration to calculate the force. **

The mass of the pachyderm is given as 1080 kg.
