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.
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!
