How much work does F do in moving the cart 3.0 m?

A person with mass of 55 kg is standing on a scale in an elevator. The elevator is moving up and accelerating at 1.5 m/s^2 for 3 seconds, then continues with constant speed. Find the scale reading...

# What is the force due to gravity?

A 10 kg mass on a horizontal friction-free table is accelerated by a string attached to 12 kg mass hanging vertically from a pulley. a) What's the force due to gravity on the 12 kg hanging mass? b)...

# Is the rope in danger of breaking?

A 80 kg container is lifted by a rope. The rope is guaranteed not to break if the tension is up to 800 N. The container started at rest, and after 2 seconds is moving at 3.0 m/s. Is the rope in danger...
