# Determine the Final Velocity

An object whose mass is 1 lb has a velocity of 100 ft/s. How would I determine the final velocity, in ft/s, if the kinetic energy of the object decreases by 100 ft*lbf? What would be the change in elevation, in ft. associated with the 100 ft*lbf change in potential energy if g=32.0 ft/s^2?
