A 88.0 kg diver falls from rest into a swimming pool from a height of 5.30 m. It takes 1.94 s for the diver to stop after entering the water. Find the magnitude of the average force exerted on the diver during that time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I found the acceleration to be 1.41 m/s^2 and then multiplied it by the mass to get 124 N. this wasn't right.

Can someone help me?

Thanks.
