    1. From the acceleration, work out the net horizontal force. 2. What is the value of the horizontal component of your 40-newton force ? 3. Work out the frictional force

    No, I don't. Use the 3 questions I provided in the right order. You can answer question 1, then draw a diagram and answer question 2. Will be here to help a few minutes more.
