A person stands on a bathroom scale in a motionless elevator. When the elevator begins to move, the scale briefly reads only 0.71 of the person's regular weight. Calculate the acceleration of the elevator, and find the direction of acceleration.
An elevator (mass 4175 kg) is to be designed so that the maximum acceleration is 0.0700g. What is the maximum force the motor should exert on the supporting cable? What is the minimum?
Divide. Round to the nearest hundredth if necessary. 0.00829/0.003 my answer: 2.76 Is this correct
