Solution - The force needed is to be calculated by using the relation :

Force = mass * acceleration                           F = m * a

Force, F = ?   ( To be calculated)                       Mass, m = 6 Kg

Acceleration, a = 4 m/s

Now putting the value in above equation, we get

F = 6 * 4

Force, F = 24 N ,  Thus the force needed is of 24 newtons.
