(a) What is the maximum height the rocket will reach above the launchpad?

(b) How fast is the rocket moving at the instant before it crashes onto the launchpad?

(c) How longer after engine failure does it take for the rocket to crash onto the launchpad?

a)

deltay=vi(t)+1/2(a)(t)^2

deltay=0(15.4)+1/2(2.25m/s^2)(15.4s^2)

deltay=266.8m

b)Vf^2=vi^2+2(g)(deltay)

vf=+/-squareroot(2(-9.8m/s^2)(-266.8m))

vf=-72.3m/s

Can anyone tell me if what I'm doing is correct? and can i get a hint on how to solve question (c)?

Thanks!
