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

Some aircraft are capable of accelerations

of magnitude 42.5 m/s2. If an aircraft starts

from rest, how long will it take the aircraft

to travel down the 2.6-km runway?

2. Relevant equations

d= vi(t) - 1/2 a(t)^{2}

I am assuming that you need to solve for t. I had trouble altering the equation to do that.

3. The attempt at a solution

since velocity initial is 0m/s, I keep getting divide by zero error, and I get a cube root.
