Small ice cubes, each of mass 5.00 g, slide down a frictionless ski-jump track in a steady stream, as shown in Figure P6.71. Starting from rest, each cube moves down through a net vertical distance of y = 1.75 m and leaves the bottom end of the track at an angle of 40.0° above the horizontal. At the highest point of its subsequent trajectory, the cube stikes a vertical wall and rebounds with half the speed it had upon impact. If 10.0 cubes strike the wall per second, what average force is exerted on the wall?

I have no idea how to solve this question. I know how to get the final velocity when the ice is lauched. mgh = 0.5mv^2 and the answer is 5.857 m/s. Can someone guide me in doing this? Hints or suggestion will help too.
