To solve this type of problem, we use the same equations of motion, but we must break up the problem in to two parts. The first part is calculating the position and velocity of the rocket before engine cuttoff. After that, the problem simplifies to a rocket traveling upwards to an apex in motion influenced only by gravitational acceleration.
