Forces on Elevator
You have access to a very tall building with a variable power elevator. You bring a Vernier Force Plate on the elevator with you along with a heavy crate to put on the force plate.
You will generate a Force vs. time graph and from that you must determine different things about the situation.
When you are ready to start the problem, click on the Begin button and when you have worked out your answers hit End to submit your results.
Use the buttons to control the elevator and then use the graph to determine the mass of the crate, the top speed of the elevator, and the distance travelled by the elevator from start to finish.
You can activate the graph at any time.
