A 96.6kg person stands on a scale in an elevator. What is the apparent weight when the elevator is (a) accelerating upward with an acceleration of 1.79 m/s2, (b) moving upward at a constant speed, and (c) accelerating downward with an acceleration of 1.14 m/s2?

AWeight=mg+ma
a. m(9.8+1.79)
b. m(9.8+0)
c. m(9.81.14)
