Physics

A model rocket is launched upward with an initial speed of 50 m/s. It accelerates with a net constant upward acceleration of 2.0 m/s^2 until its engines stop at an altitude of 150 m. (a) What is the maximum height reached by the rocket? (b) how long after the life-off does the rocket reach its maximum height? (c) how long is the rocket in the air?
