A Cessna aircraft has a lift-off speed of 120 km/h.

(a)What minimum constant acceleration does this require if the aircraft is to be airborne after a take=off of 240m?

Work: 120 km/h-->33.3 m/s
(33.3 m/s)^2= (16.7 m/s)^2 + 2a(240 m)
a= 1.73 m/s^2
[What did I do wrong?]

(b)How long does it take the aircraft to be airborne?

Answer in back of book: (a) 2.32 m/s^2
(b) 14.4 s
