An airport has runways only 142 m long. Asmall plane must reach a ground speed of 45 m/s before it can become airborne. What average acceleration must the plane’s engines provide if it is to take off safely from its airport?Answer in units of m/s2.

  3. Vf=45
    Vi=0
    d=142

    45^2=2*a*142
    solve for a.
    Yep, yours is way wrong.
