So the school is trying to blame, and make us pay for the alleged breaking of an elevator on me and my two friends and we are trying to prove it is not possible. I need some physics help cause my last physics course was in high school. There were 3 of us, weighing 190lbs, 169lbs and 159lbs, respectively, for a total of 518lbs or 234.96 kilograms. They claimed we were jumping so I want to see how high we would have to have jumped in order to go over the weight limit (2,500lbs or 1,133.98 kilograms) and show them it’s not possible for us to have broken the elevator and that it was in bad shape already. I figured we could measure the height of the jumps at the following: .25ft (.0762m) .5ft (.1524m) .75ft (.2286m) 1ft (.3048m) I believe those are all the measurements we need, I will be willing to provide any others. Any help appreciated, these repairs may be expensive and we are poor college students.. Faculty just trying to get more money out of us! Thanks all.
