Far in space, where gravity is negligible, a 475 rocket traveling at 95.0 fires its engines. The figure shows the thrust force as a function of time. The mass lost by the rocket during these 30 s is negligible.

a.) What impulse does the engine impart to the rocket?
b.) At what time does the rocket reach its maximum speed?
c.) What is the maximum speed of the rocket?
