**chain velocity??**

## Homework Statement

A chain of metal links with total mass M = 6 kg is coiled up in a tight ball on a low-rriction table. you pull on a link at one end of the chain with a constant force F = 67 N. Evntually the chain straightens out to its full length L = 0.9 m, and you keep pulling until you have pulled your end of the chain a total distance d = 2.9 m, consider the point particle system. what is the speed of the chain at this instant?

i know in the point particle system the center of mass move 2.45 m. you still have the 67 N force ect.. but not sure how to find velocity? i know i can find acceleration using F = m*a

but then what do i do with the a to find v? i know there is some relationship and when i look it up on google it does not explain it really well so hopeing you can.

thanks for the help!
