A 0.145kg baseball traveling 35.0 m/s strikes the catcher's mitt which, in bring the ball to rest, recoils backward 11.0 cm. What was the average force applied by the ball on the glove?

The kinetic energy of the baseball is converted to work pushing the catcher's glove. That work equals Fav*X
where Fav is the average force and X is the distance moved by the glove.
Thus
Fav = (M/2) V^2/X
