Concept Checker for Elevator Ride Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Elevator Ride simulation consists of 24 questions organized into 6 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Elevator Ride simulation. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to relate feelings of weightlessness and weightiness to the acceleration and forces experienced by a rider on an elevator ride.
  • The student should be able to use mass and acceleration values to determine the normal force on an elevator rider.
