what equation would i use to find the max velocity and max alt of a rocket. the probem gave me mass of rocket (g), mass of engine (g), mass of propellant (g), average thrust of engine(newtons), burn duration of the engine (seconds). i got an example which is massrocket=23,mass engin=16.2,massproppelant=3.12, averagethrust=8 and burndurationengine=.5(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

their max vel=101.37 and max alt = 549.621

it gave me some equations which are x=x0+vt , v=v0+at , x=x0+v0t+.5at"square" and f=ma

(x=distance,v=velocity, t=time, a= acceleration, f=force, m=mass and 9.8 as grav m/s"square

i need better understanding of what information goes where plug in to equation

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
