Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Omari on Monday, April 5, 2010 at 8:45am.

A baseball catcher puts on an exhibition by catching a 0.150 kg ball dropped from a helicopter at a height of 100 meters above the catcher. If the catcher "gives" with the ball for a distance of 0.750 meters while catching it, what average force is exerted on the mitt by the ball? (g = 9.80 m/s^2)

a. 78N
b. 119N
c. 197N
d. 392N

The equation I have for average force is "Favg=delta (m*v) / delta time" but I don't think I can apply it directly to this situation.

How do you solve this problem?
