**Using the following specifications, what speed can this hypothetical flying vehicle move?**

Standard weight: 43.4 metric tons

Max Acceleration: 0.93 G

Rocket Thrusters: 2 x 24000 kg , 4 x 1870 kg

Standard weight: 43.4 metric tons

Max Acceleration: 0.93 G

Rocket Thrusters: 2 x 24000 kg , 4 x 1870 kg

I know that speed = distance / time. I have the weight of the object in question, and I believe I can derive its mass from its weight to get 43,400 kilograms. I'm not very good with mathematical concepts in physics but from what I understand 'G' is a unit of acceleration and 1 standard unit of G or gravity is 9.8 m/s2. So a max acceleration of 0.93 G would be 9.114 m/s2.

If force = mass * acceleration then 9.114 m/s2 * 43,400 kg = 395547.6 Newtons of force. And that's great, but, I'm not asked for the force, but the speed. I don't know where to go from here and the information listed above is all I have. The equations I've done don't seem to help any. Any aid or direction I can get here would be appreciated. Thank you.
