I have a question that's bugging me. Googling it only made me more confused so I really hope someone can help me clear this.
If a plane is flying up and down; or hovering (Like the x-wing scene from star wars for example, when yoda uses the force) does that result in constant acceleration or varied acceleration?
If the final velocity is 0, because it comes back to the same position, (please correct me if i'm wrong) and the time it takes to go up and come back down is 10 seconds, that would make a constant acceleration of (0/10) which is 0?!
EDIT: I know it sounds like such a weird question but the reason I'm asking this is that I'm doing a project on teaching academic subjects using pop culture (hence the yoda reference) and want to make sure the stated acceleration is theoretically correct.
EDIT: I drafted an image to help illustrate my question, I hope it helps.
