The motor for an elevator can produce 2200 W of power. The elevator has a mass of 1100 kg complete with contents . At what constant speed will the elevator rise ?
I tried that but it does not give me the correct answer which is 0.204 m/s
The solution proposed to you, gives just this result
v = P/mg = 2200/1100•9.8 = 0.204 m/s
