A rail gun uses electromagnetic energy to accelerate objects quickly over a short distance. In an experiment, a 2.00 kg projectile remains on the rails of the gun for only 2.10x10^-2 s, but in that time it goes from rest to a velocity of 4.00×10^3 m/s. What is the average acceleration of the projectile?
