# Day 9: Elevator Distances

In AP Physics C today, we rode the elevator while standing on a force plate. Using the force vs. time data, can you figure out the distance between the top and bottom floors? (Hint: Use the momentum principle.)

Nice! I’ve never tried to do the distance calculations like this before. I use this exact activity for practice with Fnet and N2L. Determine the average and maximum accelerations of the elevator starting and stopping.
