Your engineering firm is asked to specify the maximum load for the elevators in a new building. Each elevator has mass 500 kg when empty and maximum acceleration 2.25 m/s^2. The elevator cables can withstand a maximum tension of 19.6 kN before breaking. For safety, you need to ensure that the tension never exceeds two-thirds of that value. What do you specify for the maximum load?How many 75.0-\rm kg people is that?
