Find the time necessary by a rocket ship to attain speed of light and the distance travelled to attain the speed.
Comfortable Acceleration assumes a rocket ship in deep space moves with constant acceleration equal to 9.8 m/s2 that give the illusion of normal gravity during the flight.
(a) If it starts from rest, how long will it take to acquire a speed 0.23 times that of light, which travels at 3.0 108 m/s?
(b) How far will it travel in so doing?
2 ___________ km
(c) How long will it take to acquire a speed 0.15 times that of light
How far would it travel in so doing?
