The blade and fluid velocities for an axial turbine are as shown in the figure.

The magnitude of absolute velocity at entry is $300$ $m/s$ at an angle of $65^\circ$ to the axial direction, while the magnitude of the absolute velocity at exit is $150 \: m/s$. The exit velocity vector has a component in the downward direction. Given that the axial (horizontal) velocity is the same at entry and exit, the specific work (in $kJ/kg$) is__________
