#### 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 m/s^{2} and in multiples of *g* (9.80 m/s^{2}) ?

**Solution:**

The formula for acceleration is

Substituting the given values

This can be expressed in multiples of g

Therefore, the average acceleration is 108.33 m/s^{2} and can be expressed as 11.05g.
