    Application

    A rocket lifts off the surface of Earth with a constant acceleration of 20 m/sec^2.
    How fast will the rocket be going one minute later?

    Can someone at least point me in the right direction? Thanks!

    In a sense, you can solve the differential equation \frac{\,dv}{\,dt}=20, with initial condition v\!\left(0\right)=0.

    In the end, its going to turn out to be 20\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}^2}\cdot 60\text{s}=1200\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}
