    Answer: 1.58 m/s^2

    Explanation:

    Given the following:

    Applied force = 132 N

    Mass of sled = 83.3 kg

    Rate of acceleration of sled = ?

    F = mass * acceleration (Newton's 2nd law of motion)

    F = Net force

    Inputing the values:

    F = mass * acceleration

    132 = 83.3 * acceleration

    acceleration = 132 / 83.3

    Acceleration = 1.5846338

    Acceleration = 1.58 m/s^2
