Acceleration of the sled $= 0.62$ $m/s^{2}$
We have, $Force = Mass\times Acceleration$, So, $\frac{Force}{mass}= Acceleration$ Substituting the known values, it gives : $\frac{5.2 N } {8.4 kg}=Acceleration$ $Acceleration = 0.619$ $m/s^{2} \approx 0.62m/s^{2}$ So, acceleration of sled is $0.62m/s^{2}$.
