A car travels along a straight road. It starts from rest and accelerated in two stages. Each stage takes the same amount of time. In the first stage, the car speeds up with acceleration 3.0 m/s^2. At the end of the second stage, the cars velocity magnitude is 2.5 times greater than it is at the end of the first stage. Find the acceleration magnitude in the second stage.

Consider the first stage

Given that the car starts from rest and speeds up with an acceleration of

Use formula
