Intergated chemistry/physics

If the elevator were falling on the moon 9800 meters/second^2, what would the force be? (hint: you will need to look up the acceleration due to gravity on the moon.)

  • Intergated chemistry/physics -

    netforce=mass*a
    pushing force+gravity force=ma
    where gravity force=m "g" look up "g" for the moon at its surface.

    Now, you will need the mass of the elevator.
