## Main Question or Discussion Point

How long does it take to reach the speed of light at 1G acceleration?

The equation for acceleration is a = (v-u) divided by t.

a = acceleration = g = 9.8 m/s/s

v = final velocity, which in this case is the speed of light=300,000,000 m/s

u = initial velocity=0

t = time

9.8= (300000000 - 0) / 't'

9.8 X 't'= 300000000

't'= 300000000 / 9.8

time to reach the speed of light at 1G = 30612244.9 seconds or about 353 days...

I have been experiencing 1G acceleration all my life, well over 15,000 days...so I feel I am entitled to the distinction of being in a state faster than the speed of light. I don't know about you folks.

So, maybe someone can enlighten me, please.
