Problem: A test rocket starting from rest at point A is launched by accelerating it along a 200.0-m incline at 1.80 m/s2 . The incline rises at 35.0 above the horizontal, and at the instant the rocket leaves it, its engines turn off and the rocket is subject to gravity only (ignore air resistance).Find the maximum height above the ground that the rocket reaches.Find the rockets greatest horizontal range beyond point A.
