Homework Help: Physics

Posted by johnny on Tuesday, June 1, 2010 at 7:56pm.

A rocket, initially at rest on the ground, accelerates straight upward from rest with constant acceleration 58.8m/s^2 . The acceleration period lasts for time 8.00s until the fuel is exhausted. After that, the rocket is in free fall.

Find the maximum height y_max reached by the rocket. Ignore air resistance and assume a constant acceleration due to gravity equal to 9.8m/s^2


Im not sure what equations i should use to get started
