## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

i don't know what formula to use. im trying to set up systems where final position is 5100m, and initial position is 0m. please help

i am trying to go about this saying that initial velocity was zero and using the equation

final velocity = initial velocity + (a)(t) where a is acceleration and t is time.
