Question:

How long must the runway be for the airplane to reach its takeoff speed if the jet accelerates at a rate of 1. Mile per second.

Linear Motion with Constant Acceleration

If an object moves with constant acceleration {eq}a {/eq}, its velocity is increased during a time {eq}t {/eq} by {eq}\Delta v = a \, t {/eq}.

Answer and Explanation:

The typical takeoff speed for a fully loaded Boeing 747 is around 160 knot, which is about 185 miles per hour (source: Wikipedia). This translates...
