*accelerating upward with an acceleration of 1.10 m/s2,*

F(net) = F(up) + F(down)

ma = Fup + Fg

(74.0kg)(1.10m/s^2) = Fup + (74.0kg)(-9.8m/s^2)

Find Fup to get the scale reading

(The scale reading is the value of the upward force of the spring inside the scale)

(b)*moving upward at a constant speed,*

F(net) = F(up) + F(down)

0 = F(up) + F(down)

F(up) = -F(down)

(c)*accelerating downward with an acceleration of 1.00 m/s2*

(74.0kg)(-1.00m/s^2) = Fup + (74.0kg)(-9.8m/s^2)

Find F(up)
