Homework Help: What was the average force exerted by the ball on the glove?

    I need help with this problem. I have no idea how to start it

    A baseball that weighs 140 g and is traveling at 30 m/s moves a fielder's glove 35 cm backward when the ball is caught. What was the average force exerted by the ball on the glove.

    Thanks in advance

    Hint: Consider the work done by the glove.
