A fully loaded 737 aircraft takes off at 250km/h.If its acceleration is a steady 3.3 , how long a runway is required? How much time does it take the plane to reach takeoff?

Can you clarify the units for the acceleration of 3.3?
Note: the acceleration of a 737 is in the range of 1.61.9 m/s².

That is a little fast for a fully loaded 737, but I'm not buying one, so it doesn't matter!
Hint: convert all quantities to consistent units, in this case, in metres and seconds.
For example,
Final speed, v1
=250 km/hr = 250 *1000m / 3600 s
Acceleration, a
= 3.3 m/s²
Time required, t
= v1/a s
Length of runway required, S
= v1²/(2a)
Post your answers for a check if you wish.

where do you get the equation v1²/(2a)
