Physics : Vertical Motion #2

An elevator starts from rest at the ground floor of the building. It experiences an acceleration a=0.500m/s^2 and reaches a velocity of 5.48m/s. What is the floor reached by the moving elevator, knowing that each floor us 3.00m high?

  3. at which floor does the elevator reach final velocity ...

    you have the answer

    the elevator is traveling almost two floors per second, so it "reaches" well above the 11th floor ... I repeat ... unclear
