#### Assume that an intercontinental ballistic missile goes from rest to a suborbital speed of 6.50 km/s in 60.0 s (the actual speed and time are classified). What is its average acceleration in and in multiples of ?

**SOLUTION:**

The formula for acceleration is

Substituting the given values

This can be expressed in multiples of g

Therefore, the average acceleration is and can be expressed as 11.05g.
