Question #16332

A man stands on a scale while riding an elevator. The mass of the man is 111kg.

Remember: a scale actually measures the normal force between an object and the floor!

What will the scale say when the elevator is stopped on the ground floor? Newtons

What will the scale say when the elevator is ascending at 4.3m/s²? Newtons

What will the scale say when the elevator is descending at -4.6m/s²? Newtons

What will the scale say if the elevator is ascending at the same rate as gravity? Newtons

What will the scale say if the elevator is descending at the same rate as gravity? Newtons

What will the scale say if the elevator is ascending at a constant speed of 19m/s? Newtons

What will the scale say if the elevator is descending at a constant speed of 13m/s? Newtons

At what rate does the elevator have to descend for the scale to read 300Newtons? m/s²

At what rate does the elevator have to ascend for the scale to read 1598Newtons? m/s²
