(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In 1985 in San Antonio, Texas, an entire hotel building was moved several blocks on 36 dollies. The mass of the building was about 1.45 x 10^6 kg. If 1.00 x 10^2 J of work was done to overcome the force of resistance that was just 2.00 percent of the building's weight. How far was the building moved?

2. Relevant equations

Net Work = deltaKE or deltaKE = KE(final) - KE(initial) = -1/2mv(initial)^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm confused on what to look for first and what formula to use.

Could someone please help me out?

Thank You.
