The vertical motion of an elevator is recorded and a Position vs Time plot is generated. The plot is shown in the image attached.
1. Construct a scale drawing of the associated Velocity vs Time plot complete with axis labels.
2. Calculate the average acceleration for the time interval t =8.0s to t = 10s.
3. Sketch a force diagram of an elevator occupant with a mass of 70 kg during the time interval t =8.0s to t = 10s.
4. Calculate the Normal force F N of the occupant using the acceleration you calculated in part 2
Can somebody please tell me where I went wrong? Thanks!!
Mt attempt:
1. Velocity during 0 to 10 = 14 m / 10 s = 1.4 m/s
Velocity during 10 to 19 = 0 m/s
Velocity during 19 to 25 = 14 m /6 s =  2.33 m/s
2. a = delta v/delta t = 0  1.4 m/s/2 s = 0.7 m/s^2
3. I have no clue. How do you figure this one out?
4. Fn = 70 kg * 2.33 m/s^2 = 163.10 N
