I'm doing intro-physics and i'm stuck on this Q:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"In a human cannonball act in the circus, the barrel of a cannon is 3.05 meters long and 1070 J of work are used to accelerate the person. What is the force exerted on the person (in newtons)?"

I know the formula for force is F=ma, but i feel like i'm missing something here.

Can anyone help me?
