Aircraft carriers are very large ships that launch jets. The length of an aircraft carrier is 150 m. A jet taking off accelerates uniformly from rest and travels the length of the aircraft carrier in 2.00 s What is the magnitude of the jet’s velocity when it leaves the ship?

    How does this question expect me to figure out the velocity at 2 seconds if they do not give me the acceleration of the jet?

    I have tried V= displacement/time but that gives me the average velocity, and I think it wants the instantaneous velocity.
