1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rocket of mass 0.5kg is shot vertically and burns for 1.5s, providing a constant force of 22N. After 1.5s what is the height of the rocket above the ground? 3. The attempt at a solution by taking m*g of the rocket (downwards force) away from the 22N force (upwards). I figured the resulting upwards force = 17N unsure how i use this to get the maximum height though
Start with a free body diagram. What are the forces acting on the body? What is the resultant of these forces?
