# Determining time when given only distance and acceleration?

I need to solve a story problem. The only information that I have is that an object is traveling at an acceleration of 0.1 meters per second per second per minute and needs to travel 1600 km. How long will it take to travel this distance assuming that the object started at rest?
Please provide the equation and...

Please provide the equation and solution if possible. Thank you!
