If F is the thrust and m the mass of the rocket, the forces on the rocket are F upwards and its weight mg downwards.

The upward acceleration a satisfies:

F - mg = ma

F = m(g + a)

= 0.230(9.81 + 11.0)

= 4.79 N.

The upward acceleration a satisfies:

F - mg = ma

F = m(g + a)

= 0.230(9.81 + 11.0)

= 4.79 N.
