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 ?
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.
