Help with mastering physics problem 5.138: vertical rocket launch with instrument hanging inside at constant acceleration.?

A 2.60×104-kg rocket blasts off vertically from the earth's surface with a constant acceleration. During the motion considered in the problem, assume that g remains constant. Inside the rocket, a 17.3-N instrument hangs from a wire that can support a maximum tension of 27.7 N

Part A
Find the minimum time for this rocket to reach the sound barrier (330m/s) without breaking the inside wire.

Part B
Find the maximum vertical thrust of the rocket engines under these conditions.

Part C
How far is the rocket above the earth's surface when it breaks the sound barrier? .
