3. While taking off from an aircraft carrier, a jet starting from rest accelerates uniformly to a final speed of 40. meters per second on a runway that is 70. meters long. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the jet?

Let's first determine what we are given. We have initial speed = 0 since the jet starts at rest. We also have a final speed of 40 m/s. We have distance of 70 meters...
