The space shuttle has a mass of 2,000,000 kg. At liftoff, the engines generate a force of 32,000,000 N. What is the velocity of the shuttle after 10 minutes if the acceleration rate were 13 m/s/s? What is the acceleration of the shuttle?

The trust force is countering gravity, and the excess is accelerating.

EngineForce= mass(g + a)

solve for a.

Then,

vfinal=acceleration*time.

change time to seconds.
