a soldier fires an anti-tank missile at a stationary tank 4850 meters distant. The missile is fired with an initial speed of 28.5 m/s and accelerates with a constant acceleration of 18.6 m/s^2 for 6.42 s. The missile then continues on with a constant speed until it hits its target.  What is the total time that it took the missile to hit the target from the moment it was launched?
