**1. Homework Statement**

a 50 kg diver steps off a diving board and drops straight down into the water. The water provides an upward average net force of 1500 N. If the diver comes to rest 5.0m below the water's surface, what is the total distance between the diving board and the diver's stopping point under water?

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

the total force would be Fn-Fg which is 1500-50*9.81=1009.5N

W=1009.5*(x+5)

i am completely lost on what to do next. please give me a clue or something.
