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

electron starting from rest and moving with constant acceleration travels 4.7cm in 8.2ms. What is the magnitude of this acceleration? Answer in km/s^2

2. Relevant equations

X=Xi + (Vi)t + 1/2at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Vi = 0 so the equation becomes X = Xi + 1/2at^2

t = 8.2ms and X = 4.7 so 4.7 = Xi + 1/2a(8.2)^2

I feel like I did everything right up to this point but all I need is acceleration to plug in but I'm not sure how to get that.
