A man with mass m =96.4 kg (weight = 212.1 lbs is walking towards a patio at 2.00 m/s (4.47 mph) when, at the last moment, he realizes the sliding glass door is closed. He puts out his hand suddenly to stop himself, and comes to a halt in 90.0ms. Find the magnitude of the average force exerted on the door by his hand.
