What is the acceleration of the jet in g's?

On aircraft carriers, catapults are used to accelerate jet aircraft to flight speeds in a short distance. One such catapult takes a 17,600-kg jet from 0 to 68 m/s in 2.6 s. (Assume the catapult acts in the positive horizontal direction. Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer where appropriate.)
