A rocket moves straight upward, starting from rest with an acceleration of +25.5 m/s2. It runs out of fuel at the end of 4.26 s and continues to coast upward, reaching a maximum height before falling back to Earth.
(a) Find the rocket's velocity and position at the end of 4.26 s.
vb = m/s
yb = m

(b) Find the maximum height the rocket reaches.

(c) Find the velocity the instant before the rocket crashes on the ground.

  • physics - ,

    a. Vf=at=25.5 m/s^2 * 4.26s=10=108.6m/s
    h=0.5a*t^2 = 0.5*25.5*(4.26)^2=231.4 m

    b. hmax = (Vf^2-Vo^2) / 2g,
    hmax = (0-(108.6)^2)/ -19.6 = 601.7 m.

    c. Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*d ,
    Vf^3 = 0 + 19.6*601.7 = 11793.3,
    Vf = 108.6.
