Can I do a rocket problem with changing M without involving(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

an integral?

I am currently taking Calculus 1 and have not learned

The Problem:

2 parts

1st part: find the max V when fuel runs out.

2nd part: find the R(range), where the rocket crashes when fuel runs out.
