a bag weighing 9.4kg is dropped 1m onto concrete, what is the impact force in kg

• errors in problem statement -

kg is mass, not force
there is no way to do the calculation anyway unless you know the deacceleration (how long to stop)

• physics -

Oh that's right sorry, if the 9.4kg bag drops 1m, before someone cathces it, what would it weigh when they c

Oh that's right sorry, if the 9.4kg bag drops 1m vertically, before someone cathces it, what weigth would they be catching??

• physics -

Weight, mg, does not mean much when the object is accelerating down. If this question is coming from a textbook, please type it exactly as it is asked.
