Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Kai on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 2:43pm.

During launches, rockets often discard unneeded parts. A certain rocket starts from rest on the launch pad and accelerates upward at a steady 3.50 m/s^2. When it is 255 m above the launch pad, it discards a used fuel canister by simply disconnecting it. Once it is disconnected, the only force acting on the canister is gravity (air resistance can be ignored).

What total distance did the canister travel between its release and its crash onto the launch pad?
