After 5 seconds, how fast is this block moving?
and what is the Kinetic Energy of the block after 5 seconds?

if you could give me the equations I would use to figure these out that would be great..

Ok, you have two horizontal forces (I guess they point in opposite directions). From that you can get the resultant force and then use Newtons 2nd law. Knowing initial velocity (I assume the block starts at rest) and the time you can find out the final velocity. And surely you know the equation for kinetic energy?
