    final speed ??

    A 5 kg vase is lifted vertically from rest to a distance of 10 m with a constant upward applied force of 60.0 N. Calculate

    iii) the final speed of the vase


    v^2 = U^2+2as
    V^2 = 240
    v= 15.49m/s

    is the step correct~??

    thanks for reply~

    Yes. You have three forces acting on a vase: F, mg & ma.
