Average force in baseball help?

  1. Sep 15, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A 0.140-kg baseball traveling 33.0 m/s strikes the catcher's mitt, which, in bringing the ball to rest, recoils backward 13.0 cm.
    What was the average force applied by the ball on the glove?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know how to find the data to plug into the equation.
