I know that rips/tears on covers over 1 inch are not acceptable.  SO.....I was wondering if a rip/tear that's aprox 2-1/2 inches and has been taped, makes it acceptable and should not be RWAPed.

No, that wouldn't be acceptable.  Tape can't be used to make an unpostable book postable.

 

Just a note that if a dust jacket is torn, rather than the cover itself, the book is still postable since dust jackets don't have to be included.  If a requestor condition required the dust jacket, though, then the same rules apply as for the cover.

The book I'm wondering about is a paperback/softcover book.  I will mark it RWAP

What Patty said, tape cannot make an unpostable book postable.
