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 ?

power=force*distance/time=weight*velocity
velocity= power/weight=2200W/1110*g 
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
