# Acceleration and speed? Physics/maths? Pls help...?

How would you go calculate this:
1) A rocket has an average speed of 5000 km per hour.
Travelling at this speed, how long would it take the rocket to travel
12,740km?
2 From take off, the rocket can get upto 2 km/s in 14 seconds. What's the acceleration of the rocket in m/ss?

How would you go calculate this:

1) A rocket has an average speed of 5000 km per hour.

Travelling at this speed, how long would it take the rocket to travel

12,740km?

2 From take off, the rocket can get upto 2 km/s in 14 seconds. What's the acceleration of the rocket in m/ss?

^

I know the units for acceleration

are metres per second squared,

but my computer doesn't do the

little '2' for squared.

I'm NOT asking people to do my homework for me, i'm just asking

1) The sums i would need to do to calculate these things

and

2) Why?

Thanks very much =]
