A rocket-powered hockey puck has a thrust of 1.20 and a total mass of 1.50 . It is released from rest on a frictionless table, 3.20 from the edge of a 3.60 drop. The front of the rocket is pointed directly toward the edge. How far does the puck land from the base of the table?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Okay, so I found the accleration of the puck in the x-direction to be 0.8m/s/s and the difference in time between the moment it is at the end of the table to be 0.857s. But past this I have been unable to find initial velocity or final velocity or anything that I could plug into a kinematics equation to help me find the final position of the puck, on the x-axis.
