    The total force is the vector sum of all forces. Frictional force is opposite to the driving force. Ftotal = 34.2N-23.5N From newtons II law: Force = mass * acceleration you can get Force / mass = acceleration You know the total force and you know the mass. So you also can know the acceleration.
