A small turbo-prop commuter airplane, starting from rest on a Gander airport runway, accelerates for 19.5 s before taking off. Its speed at takeoff is 53.6 m/s (120 mi/hr). Calculate the acceleration of the plane, in g's, assuming it remains constant. (i.e., divide the acceleration in m/s2 by 9.81 m/s2).
