An object with a mass of 2.0 kg accelerates 2.0 m/s^2 when an unknown force is applied to It. What is the amount of the force?

$4 N$
When the mass $m$ is being accelerated with an acceleration of $a$ ,we can say the net force acting in the direction of acceleration is $F = m a$
here,it is given that only one force $F$ was applied to cause this acceleration, and also given, $m = 2 K g , a = 2 m {s}^{-} 2$
So,$F = 2 \cdot 2 = 4 N$
