A jet plane is cruising at 225.0m/s when suddenly the pilot turns the engines up to full throttle. After travelling 2.26km, the jet is moving with a speed of 392.0m/s. What is the jet's acceleration, assuming it to be a constant acceleration?
a = (v^2-Vo^2)/2d.
a = (153664-50625)/4520 = 22.8 m/s^2.
