Engineers are developing new types of guns that might someday be used to launch satellites as if they were bullets. One such gun can give a small object a velocity of 2.9 km/s, moving it through only 1.6 cm.

(a) What acceleration does the gun give this object?

(b) Over what time interval does the acceleration take place?
