1/5/11 ROCKET A test rocket is fired vertically upwards from a well. A catapult gives an initial speed of 80 m/s at ground leve. Its engines then fire and it accelerates upward at 4 m/ss until it reaches an altitude of 1000 m. At that points its engines fail and the rocket goes into free fall. a) How long is the rocket in motion before it reaches the ground? b) What is its maximum altitude? c) What is its velocity just before it collides with the earth?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
