Average force on a bouncing ball

A 1 kg\text{kg} basketball is dropped from a height of 5 m\text{m}, bounces off the ground, and returns to a maximum height of 1.8 m\text{m}. Find the magnitude of the average force (in N\text{N}) between the ball and the ground if the ball is in contact with the ground for 0.1 s. (Use g=10m/s2g=10 \text{m}/\text{s}^2 for the acceleration due to gravity.)
