the solid fuel rocket boosters used to launch the space shuttle are able to lift the shuttle 45 kilometers above earths surface. During the 2.00 min that the boosters operate, the shuttle accelerates from rest to a speed of nearly
7.50 x 10^2 m/s. What is the magnitude of the shuttle's acceleration?
