A lift ascends with an upward acceleration of 1.25ms-2. At the instant its upward speed is 2.5ms-1, a loose bolt falls from the ceiling of the lift, 2.75m from the floor. Calculate the actual distance the bolt falls. (The following equations are in no particular order but may be useful) 1.)t=square root of (2Xs/a) 2.) s=aXt2/2 As i attempted the solution, my teacher told me that there were two distances involved.
