The fastest pitched baseball was clocked at 46 m/s. If the pitcher exerted his force (assumed to be horizontal and constant) over a distance of 1.0 m, and a baseball has a mass of 145 g.

What force did the pitcher exert on the ball during this record-setting pitch?

2. Relevant equations

f=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that newtons are (kg*m)/sec^2, but I only have a velocity, not an acceleration, so I can't figure out the right force.
