A winding drum raises a cage through a height of 120 m. the cage has, at first, an accelerationof 1.5 m/s^2 until the velocity of 9 m/s is reached, after which the velocity is constant until the cage nears the top, when the final retardation is 6 m/s^2. find the time taken for the cage to reach the top.
