There's a problem with your calculations. The equation: Power
-------- = Acc.

is only valid for power at any instant, not the constant power rating of the
engine. The acceleration to maintain a constant speed should be 0. And, ig-
noring that "-1" in your equation where you integrated may have put your
results WAAAAAAY off.

I've been at this for a while, and I can't find a way to do it that doesn't
involve a non-linear differential equation. (Which we haven't done yet in
diff. eq. class. :-( )

Anyway, what now?
