Top fuel drag racer can reach the maximum speed of 304 mph at the end of the 1/4-mile (402 m) racetrack.

(a) Assuming that the acceleration is constant during the race, calculate the average value of the acceleration of the top fuel car.

(b) What is the ratio of that acceleration to the acceleration due to gravity?
