In 1865, Jules Verne proposed sending men to the Moon by firing a space capsule from a(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 220 mlong cannon with final velocity of10.78 km/s. What would have been the unrealistically large acceleration experienced by the space travelers during launch?

The answer needs to be in

Number times g.

g = 9.81

I tried v^2 = 1/2(a)(220)

So v^2 = 110

Square root of 110 = 10.48..

Not correct..

Don't know what to do.
