Newton's Law : Application of Parametric Representation

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems.

Newton's law states that the total force F (F a vector), acting on a body of mass m, is equal to the product of its mass times the acceleration a (a vector), viz:

F=ma, where F and a are vectors.

A body of mass m=2kg moves in space following a path with parametric representation

Find the total force that caused this movement at every point of the path.
