Missiles designed for defense against ballistic missiles have attained accelerations in excess of 100 g, or 100 times the acceleration due to gravity. Suppose that a missile lifts off from the ground and has a constant vertical acceleration of 100 g.
- How long does it take to reach a velocity of 60 mi/hr?
- How long does it take to reach an altitude of 10,000 ft? How fast is it going when it reaches that altitude
