On a test flight a rocket with mass 400 kg blasts off from the surface of the earth. The rocket engines apply a constant upward force F until the rocket reaches a height of 100 m and then they shut off. If the rocket is to reach a maximum height of 400 m above the surface of the earth, what value of F is required? Assume the change in the rocket’s mass is negligible.
