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

I have a problem,

Say I have a rocket that has a mass about 350kg and produces 1250kg of thrust and I launch it horizontally, I know that 1250/350 gives me the acceleration in m/s2 (roughly 3.6 m/s2) but how do I then work out the speed?

Also if I where to launch the rocket vertically would I need a different equation to incorporate the force of gravity and if so how would I do that?

Thanks for your help!
