A 800·kg elevator is attached to a cable whose tension is 7800·N.

Which of the following statements could describe the motion of the elevator? Choose all that apply.

slowing down as it moves upward
moving upward at constant speed
speeding up as it moves downward
slowing down as it moves downward
speeding up as it moves upward
moving downward at constant speed
it is at rest

    The weight of the elevator is M*g = 7840 N. The cable tension is slightly less than that. These conditions could apply:
    slowing down as it moves upward
    speeding up as it moves downward
