Question

Need help with a & b. Thanks!

Constants
Part A
During launches, rockets often discard unneeded
parts. A certain rocket starts from rest on the launch
pad and accelerates upward at a steady 3.45 m/s2
When it is 250 m above the launch pad, it discards a
used fuel canister by simply disconnecting it. Once it is
disconnected, the only force acting on the canister is
gravity (air resistance can be ignored)
How high is the rocket when the canister hits the launch pad, assuming that the rocket does not change its acceleration?
