**bobpursley**, Sunday, September 7, 2008 at 12:11amconsider the bolt when on the rocket.

Vfbolt=a*4

hfbolt=1/2*a*16=8a

Now in the free fall portion, these become vi, and hi for the bolt

vfbolt=vibolt-g*6.1=4a-6.1g

hfbolt=6.1*4a-1/2 g 6.1^2+8a=0

from this second equation

you can solve for a.
