hopefully this is relatively simple and it's just me who doesn't know how to work it out. I tried integrating (finding the anti-derivative) the equation to find the velocity, then integrating again to find displacement but my answers aren't right.
"A rocket is launched from its pad at ground level and moves vertically upwards with its engines causing it to accelerate at (28-0.2t) m/s/s for the first two minutes, t being the time, in seconds, since the launch.
At the end of the two minutes the engines reduce the thrust they produce to a level just sufficient to maintain the vertical velocity achieved at that time.
How high is the rocket after a) 1 minute? b) 2 minutes? c) 3 minutes?"
I have the answers in the back of the book which are: 43.2km, 144km, and 259.2km. Could someone please show me step by step how to achieve " answers. Thank you.
