A 79.2-kg person stands on a scale in an elevator. What is the apparent weight when the elevator is (a) accelerating upward with an acceleration of 1.92 m/s2, (b) moving upward at a constant speed, and (c) accelerating downward with an acceleration of 1.89 m/s2


I was going to use the equation
FN = mg + ma in which we are given a and mg but I was not sure what to use for m.
