A diwali rocket moves vertically with constant acceleration of 5 ms–2. After some time its fuel exhausted and then it falls freely. If maximum height attained by the rocket is 60m. Then find its speeds when the fuel is just exhausted. (g = 10ms–2)

Let h be the vertical distance travelled by rocket before exhausting the fuel.
Speed v of rocket after moved by a vertical distance h is determined from the following equation of motion
" v = u2 + ( 2 a S ) " ...........................(1)
where u = 0 is initial speed because rocket starts from rest, a = 5 m/s2 is acceleration
and S = h is distance travelled.
v2 = 2 × 5 × h or v = m/s
If total vertical distance travelled by rocket is 60 m , distance travelled vertically in gravitational field is (60-h) m .
When the rocket reaches maximum height , its final speed v = 0 . Hence in equation of motion (1) ,
if we substitute v = 0 and initial speed after exhausting fuel u = m/s , acceleration a = -g = -10 m/s2
and S = (60-h) m , then we get
10 h = 2 × 10 × (60-h)
we get h = 40 m from above expression
hence speed of rocket immediately after exhausting fuel , v = = 20 m/s

- a particle starts with velocity 20 m/s with constant retardation of 4m/s^2.find distance travelled in 7 seconds
- please answer the question given below
- obtain equation of motion of constant acceleration using matter calculus
- On turning a corner, a motorist rushing at 44 ms-1 find a child on the road ahead. He is currently stops the engine and applies the brakes so as to stop it within 1m of the child. Calculate time required to stop it stops.
