Assume that an MX missile goes from rest to a suborbital velocity of 9.50 km/s in 30.0 s (the actual speed and time are classified). What is its average acceleration in m/s2

m/s2
What is its average acceleration in multiples of g?
g

Acceleration = change in velocity/time

9.5 km/s=9500 m/s

So acceleration = (9500-0)/30= 316.67 m/s^2 (rounded off to two decimal places)

lets say acceleration 316.67 m/s^2= xg

so x = 316.67/9.8 = 32.31

So average acceleration is 32.31 multiple of g.

In a slap shot a hockey player accelerates the puck from a velocity of 5.00 m/s to 60.0 m/s in the same direction. If this takes 3.33 ✕ 10-2 s, calculate the distance over which the acceleration acts.
