    impulse is the change in momentum

    Yes, but where does impulse come here?

    It's basic newton's second law. \[F=\frac{m(v-u)}{t}\] You know m, v (=0), u and t.

    What do you mean by time average of impact force?

    @rajathsbhat you have given the way to find the force, but that is not what they are asking here.
