How would you calculate the reaction / kick load of a cannon / mortar with a Projectile Mass "Mp", Max Pressure Output of initiator/gas generator "Pg", Stroke Length "Ls", and Surface Area of the projectile where force is applied "As"?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have been trying this with basic F=ma and KE=1/2mv^2, but haven't been successful in coming close to the answer.

Can someone aid in developing formula / solving this problem?
