(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If a soccer ball of mass 0.5 kg is kicked with a speed of 14 m/s and hits a rock and is in contact with it for 0.18 seconds, with what force will it hit?

2. Relevant equations

F_{net}= ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea what to do to get the acceleration for the above formula. It can't possibly be just 14/0.18 can it?
