A rocket, initially at rest on the ground, accelerates straight upward from rest with constant net acceleration a, until time t_1, when the fuel is exhausted.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the maximum height H that the rocket reaches (neglecting air resistance).

Express the maximum height in terms of a, t_1, and/or g. Note that in this problem, g is a positive number equal to the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity.

my answer is:

(at)^2/2g +1/2at^2

is that correct yet?
