wow.. those are some big numbers :D.. but you can use newton's second law and easily solve it!
Yea, those numbers are quite large...anyway:\[F=12104N=ma=(20103kg)(a)\]Now just solve for a.
thats not right shane.. net force is upward force minus the force of gravity :P..
You're right...answered it too quickly :)
