We need more information. There is no time, distance, acceleration, or final velocity. At the moment, the displacement is theoretically infinite. Were you given any more information?

Seems like the question was supposed to specify a time, but it was left out. Just find the effective velocity.
By the way, your "relevant equation" makes no sense.
