(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 1000 kg weather rocket is launched straight up. The rocket motor provides a constant acceleration for 16s, then the motor stops. The rocket altitude 20s after launch is 5100m. You can ignore any effects of air resistance.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i don't know what formula to use. im trying to set up systems where final position is 5100m, and initial position is 0m. please help

i am trying to go about this saying that initial velocity was zero and using the equation

final velocity = initial velocity + (a)(t) where a is acceleration and t is time.
