2. If 270 million people in the United States jumped up in the air simultaneously, pushing of Earth with an average force of 800N each for a time of 0.10s, what would happen to the 5.98 x 1024 kg Earth?

And this is what i wrote:

Basically why I did was try to find out the velocity, to see if the Earth moves from the force applied. So by identifying the variable needed for ft=▲mv, I get

800(.1)= 5980000000000000000000000x. Leaving me with 80/5980000000000000000000000, leaving me with the velocity of 1.3 m/s. Therefore when 270 million people jump at the same time the Earth will move at 1.3 m/s.

is this right?
