A female whose mass is 130 kilograms is standing on a scale in an elevator that has an initial downward velocity of 6 meters per second and is accelerating upward at 7 meters per second. What's the magnitude of the apparent weight indicated by the scale?

  • physics -

    force=weigh+mass*acceleration
    = mass(g+a)

    the initial velocity is without any meaning.

  • physics -

    again-set up?
