# During your summer internship for an aerospace company, you are asked to design a small research rocket. The rocket is to be launched from rest from the earth's surface and is to reach a maximum height of 980 m above the earth's surface. The rocket's engines give the rocket an upward acceleration so it moves with the acceleration of 16.0 m/s2 during the time T, that they fire. After the engines shut off, the rocket is in free fall. Ignore air resistance. What must be the value of T in order for the rocket to reach the required altitude?

Step 1

Given Information :
Rocket is launched from rest .
Initial velocity of the rocket u = 0
Maximum height reached by the rocket H = 980 m
Acceleration of the rocket during the time(T) when it is fired is = 16 m/s2 (upwards)

Step 2

Distance travelled by the rocket during time “T”  ( when it is firing )

Step 3

Distance travelled by the rocket after shutting ...
