Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Zalak on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 10:40pm.

The Spent Rocket Parts: During launches, rockets often discard parts. A certain rocket starts from rest on the launch pad and accelerates upward at a steady 3.3 m/s2. When it is 235 m above the launch pad, the rocket discards a used fuel canister by simply disconnecting it. Once it is disconnected the only force acting on the canister is gravity.
a.How high is the rocket when the canister hits the launch pad, assuming the rocket does not change its acceleration?
b.What total distance did the canister travel between its release and its crash onto the launch pad?
