    Hint: Start by using this definition of force. Force is the time rate of change of momentum i.e.\[F=dP/dt=d(mv)/dt=vdm/dt+mdv/dt\] the mass the force is lifting is changing. the mass at any given instant is \[m=\frac{ M }{ L }x\] where x is the length of rope lifted. We also know \[x=vt\] substitute and solve.
