A rocket blasts off. In 10.0 seconds it is at 10,000 ft, traveling at 3600 mph. Assuming the direction is up, calculate the acceleration. (Hint: the rocket is not under constant acceleration).

If acceleration is not constant, there's no way to calculate it. All we can do is figure the average acceleration. That is
3600mi/hr / 10s = 360 mi/hr/s
You can convert that to ft/s^2 as you wish.
