A space shuttle is launched from rest. It takes 8.00 s to reach 158 km/h , and at the end of the first 1.00 min its speed is 1580 km/h .Assuming the acceleration is constant during each time interval (but not necessarily the same in both intervals), what distance does the shuttle travel during the interval from 8.00 s to 1.00 min?

A space shuttle is launched from rest. It takes 8.00 s to reach 158 km/h , and at the end of the first 1.00 min its speed is 1580 km/h .

Assuming the acceleration is constant during each time interval (but not necessarily the same in both intervals), what distance does the shuttle travel during the interval from 8.00 s to 1.00 min?
