ok i have a simple enough scenario that i need a hand with solving. first off just to say, i dont know how to do the math for it so maybe someone here could help me out.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

basically has to do with finding the top velocity of an object with a certain force applied. all in a vacuum and without any form of resistance of course.

so lets say object A (a cubic foot rock, at a 100lbs in weight on earth) is motionless in space. and object B applies a 100lbs of force on the rock for a tenth of a second every 5 seconds..

oh and as the mass of the rock increase with speed the time between applied force will also decrease.

how long will it take to reach its maximum velocity and how fast will object A and the rock (object B) be going with it pushing on the rock at all time.
