## Homework Statement

Hi everyone, Im just wondering how you would solve this question..

2. Elevator Problem (Practice on Segmented Motion)

A hotel elevator ascends 200 m with maximum speed of 5 m/s. Its acceleration and

deceleration both have a magnitude of 1.0 m/s

How long does it take to make a complete trip from bottom to top.

## Homework Equations

xf = xi + vi Δt + 1/2aΔt^2

v = vi + a*t

## The Attempt at a Solution

There was another part to this question which asked me to solve for how far the elevator will move while accelerating to full speed from rest, and I got 12.5 m for that.

Do I plug in 12.5 m into this equation and solve for t? Thank you!
