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).

Steve,
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.
