Homework Help: physics

Posted by Amber on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 12:30am.

The figure below shows the speed of a person's body as he does a chin-up. Assume the motion is vertical and the mass of the person's body is 73.4 kg. Determine the force exerted by the chin-up bar on his body at the following times. t=0s, speed= 0cm per second; t= .5s, speed= 15cm per second; t=1.1s, speed =28cm per second; t=1.6s, speed=6cm per second.

I have no idea how to even begin to approach this problem. I am given a mass, time, and speed but Im asked to find a force. If anyone could please help me I would greatly appreciate it.
