Expert Answer:

We use the following equation of motion to get acceleration a from given distance S, initial speed u and time duration t of travel .
 
S = u t + (1/2) a t2
 
By substituting relavant values in above equation, we get
 
72000 = 20 ×1800 + ( 0.5 × a × 1800 × 1800 ) 
 
By solving above expression, we get a = ( 1/45 ) m/s2
