A 50.0 kg diver steps off a 10.0 m high diving board and drops straight down into the water. If the diver comes to rest 5.0 m below the surface of the water, determine the average resistance force exerted on the diver by the water.

2. Relevant equations

PEg=mgh

KE=1/2 mv^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I did a similar question to this about a parachutist, but in that question there was a final velocity, in this one it seems like the final velocity would be 0? so im lost....
