    B)Basma approaches a road, so she stops quickly. It tAkes her 2.6 seconds to stop. What is the resultant force acting on her?

    Part a is 236kg m/s but how do I solve part b? Thanks

    I guess bcoz the change is new momentum (0) - old momentum (236) = -236n/2.6 seconds = -90.76... Is it wrong? If yes please explain thanks
