What distance would a body have to travel to attain a speed of 25,000 an hour with the acceleration limited to producing a given number of g-forces on the body, say 4g.

So the acceleration would produce a constant g-force of 4 on the body.

The desired speed is 25,000 MPH.

How far would the body have to travel to attain it?

The twist in the calculation is using g-force as an acceleration measurement.

I am trying to solve a problem in my design of a theoretical space transportation system. I need that acceleration length as a vital piece of the puzzle.
