Parameter Identification, Acceleration

A bioengineer studying the mechanics of bird flight models the acceleration of the snow petrel as an equation of the form a = C + D t, where C and D are constants. Measurements obtained from videotape indicate that one bird requires 1.42 s and a distance of 4.3 m to take off and is moving at 6.1 m/s when it lifts off. What are the constants C and D?
