6. A 55 kg student stands on a bathroom scale in an elevator of total mass 7.0 X 10 2 kg that is accelerating upward at 1.5 m/s 2. a) What is the tension in the cable that is pulling the elevator up? b) What would the student’s apparent weight be in the elevator (i.e. the reading on the scale)? For the Air the Earth wouldnt move, and for the Earth the Air wouldnt move, since they would run at the same velocity. But since they have separate motions and one doesnt carry the other, for an observer upon the Earth it would be 1030mph rotating wind at the equator.
c. the elevator is moving downward at a constant velocity of 2.0 m/s. (19 600 N) d. the elevator is accelerating upward at 1.0 m/s2. (21 600 N) e. the elevator is accelerating downward at 1.0 m/s2. (17 600 N) 6. A man measures the acceleration of an elevator by using a spring scale. He fastens the scale to the roof, and suspends a mass from it. If the scale reads 98 N when the elevator is at rest,
