Question

An
elevator with mass of 150kg is accelerating upward at 0.3 m/s2.
Find the force exerted by the cable on the elevator (in N):

Answer #1

**Solution**

**Answer: 1515 N**

If we chose upward direction to be positive and write down the second law for elavator, there are only two forces acting on the elevator. Upward tension by cable and downward gravitational force (weight of the elavator) thus,

Thus substituting the values, acceleration a= 0.3m/s^2, acceleration due to gravity g=9.8m/s^2 and mass of elavator m=150kg

Thus
answer is **1515 N**

(a) An elevator of mass m moving upward has two forces
acting on it: the upward force of tension in the cable and the
downward force due to gravity. When the elevator is accelerating
upward, which is greater, T or w?
(b) When the elevator is moving at a constant velocity upward,
which is greater, T or w?
(c) When the elevator is moving upward, but the acceleration is
downward, which is greater, T or w?
(d) Let the elevator...

1. A person of 70 kg mass is inside an elevator. Find the
apparent weight of the person when the elevator goes up by 2
m/s2 and 2 m/s2 down.
2. An object by 2 kg mass orbits the circle by a radius of 5 m

exerted on the object?

An elevator brimming with tourists has a mass of 1900 kg. The
elevator accelerates upward (in the positive direction) from rest
at a rate of 1.8 m/s2 for 2.5 s. The elevator continues
upward at constant velocity for 8.2 s. The elevator experiences a
negative acceleration at a rate of 0.45 m/s2 for 2.1
s.
How far, in meters, has the elevator moved above its original
starting point?

Description:
A single mass m1 = 3.9 kg hangs from a spring in a
motionless elevator. The spring is extended x = 11 cm from its
unstretched length.
the spring constant of the spring is 347.45 N/m
Now, three masses m1 = 3.9 kg, m2 = 11.7
kg and m3 = 7.8 kg hang from three identical springs in
a motionless elevator. The springs all have the same spring
constant that you just calculated above.
the force the top spring...

. A 15.0 kg bookshelf is sitting in an elevator
that is accelerating upwards at 1.4 m/s2. A student
pushes the bookshelf horizontally with a force of 45.0 N. What is
the horizontal acceleration of the bookshelf if the coefficient of
static friction between the floor and the bookshelf is 0.25, and
the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.15?

1. A 500-kg elevator is pulled upward with a constant force of
4900 N for a distance of 50.0 m at constant speed.
