Problem 2.51

A rocket starts from rest and moves upward from the surface of the earth. For the first 10.0 s of its motion, the vertical acceleration of the rocket is given by ay = 12.80 m>s 3 2t, where the +y-direction is upward. (a) What is the height of the rocket above the surface of the earth at t = 10.0 s? (b) What is the speed of the rocket when it is 325 m above the surface of the earth?
