An airplane requires 420 m of runway to take off from an airstrip. If the plane starts from rest and it takes 32 s to lift off, with what velocity does it leave the ground? What was the average acceleration of the plane?

  1. Δx = vi*Δt+(1/2)aΔt²
    vi=0
    so
    Δx = (1/2)aΔt²
    a=2Δx/Δt²
    =2*420/(32²)
    =(105/128) m/s²

    vf=aΔt
    =(105/128)*32
    =26.25 m/s (not extremely fast for a plane)
