A rocket ship in free space travels with a constant acceleration equal to 9.8m/s^s.
a)If it starts from rest how long does it take to reach a velocity of one tenth of the speed of light? Note: The speed of light in a vacuum is 3.0 x 10^8 m/s.
b)How far will it travel during this time?
The Attempt at a Solution
I started with making a variable list:
I plugged these values into the equation I mentioned in # 2.
The answers I got are:
b)4.59 x 10^13
I wasn't sure how to do this and gave it a shot. Could you please explain.
