1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The olympic commissioners decided to buy and sell gold, hoping to set a new profit record. They conducted all their business in an elevator. They bought and sold at the same price per ounce. An archaic unit of force, which measured with a verticle spring scale scale suspended from the ceiling. They always bought their gold when the elevator had a downward acceleration of 2 m/s^2 and always sold when the acceleration was 2.5 m/s^2 upward. Evaluate their percentage profit based on their buying profit. - means a loss. 3. The attempt at a solution Alright so i know the following things: a of buying: 2 m/s^2 a of selling : 2.5 m/s^2 and there is something to do with springs... but how would i start off?
