A jet plane is cruising at 300 m/s when suddenly the pilot turns the engines up to full throttle. After traveling 2 km, the jet is moving with a speed of 400 m/s. What is the jet's acceleration (in m/s/s) during this interval assuming the acceleration to be constant?

2. Relevant equations

I was thinking that in order to go further you would have to solve for the seconds? So I used v=m/s and solved for s, which was then 5s. But I'm not sure where to go from there?
