How high does it go? how long?

  1. Jun 12, 2016 #1
    1. A bottle rocket has an engine that accelerates it upward. Then it coasts to its highest point before returning to the ground. Assuming that the engine creates a net acceleration of 30 m/s2 for 0.5 s, how high does it go, and how long does it take to reach the ground again?

    I know they net acceleration is 30m/s^2
    and the time is 0.5s
    my thing is how do we calculate distance with only acceleration and time ?
