Homework Help: Circular motion problem

  1. Feb 26, 2009 #1
    A rocket-powered hockey puck has a thrust of 1.70 N and a total mass of 2.50 kg. It is released from rest on a frictionless table, 2.10 m from the edge of a 1.70 m drop. The front of the rocket is pointed directly toward the edge.
    i am supposed to figure out how far away the puck lands but i am not sure where to start.
