An ice sled powered by a rocket engine starts from rest on a large frozen lake and accelerates at +42 ft/s2. After some time t1, the rocket engine is shut down and the sled moves with constant velocity v for a time t2. Assume the total distance traveled by the sled is 15800 ft and the total time is 90 s.
a) find times t1 & t2 (s)
b)find velocity (ft/s)
At the 15800 ft mark, the sled begins to accelerate at -24 ft/s2.
(c) What is the final position of the sled when it comes to rest?
ft

(d) What is the duration of the entire trip?
