Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, start from the Newton's law which say that the force acting on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by the acceleration of the object. So, \[\ F=ma\] Also note that Force is a vector so you need to specify the direction of the force.
