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

F=$$\Delta$$M/$$\Delta$$T

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