    A hockey goalie m=85kg stands in front of the net. A player hits the 0.15kg puck towards the goalie with a velocity of +59m/s. The goalie catches the puck with his glove in a time of 0.0021seconds. (assume all collisions are linear)

    A) what is the average force of the puck on the goalie?

    Yes, that's correct. Two comments:
    (1) Round off to a reasonable number of significant digits.
    (2) To get the best help in the quickest time, never just give an answer, always show how you got the answer.
