Chapter 4, Problem 36



Incorrect.


A 77.2-kg person stands on a scale in an elevator. What is the apparent weight when the elevator is (a) accelerating upward with an acceleration of 1.66 m/s2, (b) moving upward at a constant speed, and (c) accelerating downward with an acceleration of 1.42 m/s2?

  • Physics -

    Force = mass * acceleration

    if standing on scale in elevator

    Fup from scale - m g = m a
