# 1-D kinematic Problem

## Homework Statement

A jumbo jet must reach a speed of 240 km/hr on the runway for takeoff. What is the minimum constant acceleration (in km/hr/s) needed for takeoff from a 1.34 km runway? (3 sig fig)

## The Attempt at a Solution

a=vf^2/2(Δx)

a=(240 km/hr)^2/2(1.34 km) = (57600 km^2/hr^2) / (2.68 km) = 21492.53731

a=(240 km/hr)^2/2(1.34 km) = (57600 km^2/hr^2) / (2.68 km) = 21492.53731
$$21492.53731\frac{km}{hr^2}=21492.53731\frac{km}{hr^2}*\frac{1 hr}{60 min}*\frac{1 min}{60 sec}=??? \frac{km}{hr.sec}$$
