Question

Dr. John Paul Stapp was U.S. Air Force officer who studied

the effects of extreme deceleration on the human body. On

December 10, 1954, Stapp rode a rocket sled, accelerating

from rest to a top speed of 282 m/s (1015 km/h) in 5.00 s, and

was brought jarringly back to rest in only 1.40 s! Calculate his

(a) acceleration and (b) deceleration. Express each in

multiples of g (9.80 m/s^{2}) by taking its ratio to the

acceleration of gravity.
