An extreme amusement park ride accelerates its riders upward from rest at 50.0 m/s in 7 seconds. Ignoring air resistance, what average upward force does the seat exert on a rider who weights 1120N?

t = 7.00s

v = 50.0 m/s

Mass = 114.285

mg = 1120N

2. Relevant equations

∑F= ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure of that v is vi or vf.

I know my first step needs to be to solve for acceleration I just do not know how to do it given the information that I have.

Thanks
