Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Hadi on Thursday, November 9, 2006 at 2:44pm.

A loaded elevator with very worn cables has a total mass of 2600 Kg , and the cables can withstand a maximum tension of 2.90104 N .

A) Apply Newton's second law to the elevator and find the maximum upward acceleration for the elevator if the cables are not to break?
Take free fall acceleration to be g= 9.80 m/s^2 .

B)What would be the answer to part (a) if the elevator were on the moon, where free fall acceleration is gm = 1.62 m/s^2
----------
Thank you :)


Tension max = masselevator(g + a)

solve for a.

On the moon? g is 1/6 the g of Earth.
