Answer:

30.56 m/s^2

Explanation:

Given that In order to attain orbit around earth, the ATLAS V rocket must accelerate up to a speed of about 7700 meters per second in about 4.2 minutes.

The average acceleration that is required to accomplish this will be

Average acceleration = change in velocity / time

Average acceleration = 7700/ 4.2 × 60

Average acceleration = 7700/252

Average acceleration = 30.56 m/s^2
