(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An interstlear ship has a mass of 8.97 kg x10^6 and is initially at rest to a star system. What constant acceleration is needed to bring the ship up to a speed of 0.51C, relative to the star system in three days.

2. Relevant equations

constant acceleration = v2-v1/t2-t1

3. The attempt at a solution

a=1.5x10^7/1.3 x 10^5

a=120 m/s^2

???
