A 2000 kg space probe is moving rightward in empty space along the x axis at 12 m/s. One of the probe’s rockets is fired providing a thrust of 1800j N along the y axis. The rocket fires for 1.5 s.

How can I derive the equation for the trajectory of the probe during the time the rocket is fired using the formula y = a function of x and compute the final speed of the rocket at the end of the 1.5 s?
