    I don't get how to find the force? I know force as F = ma and I'm not seeing how to define the air's acceleration.

    You need to use resultant force equals to the rate of change of momentum instead of F = ma.

    So the force = momentum / time

    The problem still stands I don't have a time frame? Or is it to do with the 12ms? Does the velocity go from 0ms to 12ms in one second because in the next second it moves on to the next 12m of air? and then the mass will be the 12m tall cylinder?

    The time is in part (i).
