0.15 kg baseball is pitched with a speed of 36 m/s (79.2 mph). When the ball hits the catcher's glove, the glove moves back by 4.9 cm (1.96 in.) as it stops the ball.

(a) What was the change in momentum of the baseball?

5.4 kg·m/s opposite the ball's direction of motion

(b) What impulse was applied to the baseball?

5.4 kg·m/s opposite the ball's direciton of motion

(c) Assuming a constant acceleration of the ball, what was the average force applied by the catcher's glove?

Magnitude _____ kN opposite the ball's direction of motion

2. Relevant equations

??????

3. The attempt at a solution

i got everything except the magnatude of the force applied by the glove... i dont know how to do this when i have to relate distance to this problem.
