A Union student decided to depart from Earth after
graduation to find work on Mars. Careful calculations made
regarding the space shuttle to be built used the following mathematical
model for the velocity (in ft/sec) of the
shuttle from liftoff at seconds until the solid rocket boosters
are jettisoned at seconds:
Using this model, consider the acceleration of the shuttle. Find the absolute maximum and minimum values of acceleration between liftoff and the jettisoning of the boosters.
