Part A Find the maximum height that the rocket reaches (neglecting air resistance). Part A.1 What initial height should you use? Part not displayed Part A.2 Velocity at time Part not displayed Hint A.3 Finding additional height after You now need to find the additional vertical distance the rocket travels after it runs out of fuel. Since you don't know the time it takes for the rocket to reach its maximum height, a good approach is to use the kinematic equation that relates distance, velocity, and acceleration without involving time explicitly: . Here the subscript 0 on
