The velocity time graph of a ball of mass 20g moving along a straight line on a long table is given in (figure) How much force does the table exert on the ball to bring it to rest?

Here, m=20g = 20xx10^(-3)kg, F=?
From the graph, (figure)
initial speed, u=20 cm//s = 0.2 m//s, final speed, v=0
time taken, t=10s
As, F=ma = (m(v-u))/t= (20xx10^(-3)(0-0.2))/10= -4xx10^(4)N
