A 2.2-kg baseball is pitched to you at 21 m/s. You hit the ball back along the same path, and at the same speed. If the bat was in contact with the ball for 0.17 s, what is the magnitude of the average force the bat exerted on the ball?

Please show all work and provide any necessary equations. Thank you in advance for your help!
