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

A constant force of 396 N acts on a spacecraft of mass 7890 kg that has an initial velocity of 34 m/s. How far has the spacecraft traveled when it reaches a velocity of 4890 m/s?

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried doing F=ma and got the a= 19.92 and then setting up a=(vf-vi)/delta t

Didn't work.......

I dont know what I did wrong. Please help. thank you
