Question

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 $\textrm{ m/s}^2$ and in multiples of $g$ $(9.80 \textrm{ m/s}^2$).

$108 \textrm{ m/s}^2$ or $11.1 \textrm{ g's}$
