The cable supporting a 2100kg elevator has a maximum strength of 2.19×10^4 N.

What maximum upward acceleration can it give the elevator without breaking?

  • Physics! - ,

    mass = 2100 kg
    weight
    = mg
    = 2100 kg *9.8 m/s/s
    =20580 N
    Strength
    =21900 N
    Reserve capacity for upwards acceleration, F
    =21900-20580
    =1320N
    Use F=ma to find a. It will be less than 1 m/s/s.


    I just hope this is not a real life problem.
