(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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
