## Homework Statement

a rocket is launched with constant acceleration for 16 secs and after 20 secs its reaches 5100m

what is acceleration during first 16 secs

what is velocity at 5100m

## Homework Equations

v=v0+at

## The Attempt at a Solution

I calculated the avg acceleration as 25.5 m/s^2

I calculated the avg velocity as 255 m/s^2

I know after 16 seconds the acceleration is -9.8 m/s^2

i have tabulated various quants to try make sense of it and even did a position vs time graph but i can get further

also did motion diagrams to show velocity vector and acceleration vectors
