The upward normal force exerted by the floor is 620 N on an elevator passenger who weighs 650N. What are the reaction forces to these two forces? Is the passenger accelerating? If so, what are the magnitude and direction of acceleration?

• physics -

Netforce=ma
So the passenger is accelerating downward.
