Math question. Two part. A am rifle bullet accelerates from 0 to 1000 m/s ( about 2240 MPH) in 1/1000 second when fired. What is the avg acceleration of the bullet in m/s2? If this rate of acceleration could be somehow maintained, how long would it take for the bullet to reach the speed of light ( about 300,000,000 m/s)
