How much tension must a rope withstand if it it used to accelerate a 1700 kg car vertically upward at 0.4 m/(s ^2)?
A person stands on a bathroom scale in a motionless elevator. When the elevator begins to move, the scale briefly reads only 0.65 of the person's regular weight. What are the direction and magnitude of the acceleration?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 8:56 pm ad1c9bdddf

Tension in a Rope
How much tension must a rope withstand if it is used to accelerate a 1700 kg car vertically upward at .4 m/(s ^2)?
There are only two forces on the car, the tension T and gravity mg. The ...
It shows how to calculate acceleration of the elevator and tension of the rope
