Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First, I'm not much of a physicist. My area of study is largely in environmental sciences and geology, but I've been trying to determine the appropriate equations to use to calculate the rate of acceleration for an object in a vacuum using its mass and the power available to drive it.

I was hoping that someone might be able to help me with this problem.

The mass of the object is 750,000,000 kilograms, and the power available is 200,000 gigawatts.

How does one calculate the acceleration using these values?

Thanks in advance,
