6 The background measurement of acceleration when stationary fluctuates between 1g and 1.04g spending approximately 50% of the time at each reading. Thus the stationary reading should be 1.02g. Taking a reading of the maximum acceleration on the upwards journey gives a value of 1.12g. This corresponds to an additional upwards acceleration of ( )=0.1g = 0.98m/s 2. Finding the Acceleration

8 Finding the Velocity Integrating acceleration with respect to time gives the velocity reached by the lift. Thus the area under the graph is the velocity reached. Approximating the area as a triangle gives the velocity reached as:

10 Finding the Distance Travelled The distance traveled by the lift can be approximated by assuming that the lift travels at the calculated velocity (0.98m/s 2 ) for a time of =9.0 seconds giving a distance traveled of 8.8m.
