A 70kg mass is in a space and moving at 2.5 m/s. You push it with 200N for 4 m. You then move to the front of the mass and push it backwards with 170N for 3 m.

What was the total work done?

What was the final velocity?

2. Relevant equations

W = rest energy + F_{1}*r - F_{2}*r

3. The attempt at a solution

rest energy = 1/2*70*(2.5)^{2}= 218.75

F_{1}*r = 200*4 = 800

F_{2}*r = 170*3 = 510

W = 218.75 + 800 - 510 = 508.75 J

How would i get the final velocity?
