The amount of force is $\text{4.0 N}$.

#### Explanation:

Use the equation from Newton's second law:

$F = m a$,

where:

$F$ is the force in Newtons $\left(1 \text{kg"*"m/s"^2}\right)$, $m$ is mass in kg, and $a$ is acceleration in $\text{m/s"^2}$.

Plug in the known values into the equation.

F=("2.0 kg")xx("2.0 m/s")="4.0 kg"*"m/s"^2="4.0 N"#
