A proud angler hangs her catch from a spring balance, which is supported from the roof of an elevator.
a.) if the elevator has an upward acceleration of 2.45m/s2 and the balance reads 50.0N, what is the true weight of the fish?
b.) Under what circumstances will the balance read 30.0N?
c.) What will the balance read if the cable breaks?
a = 2.45m/s2
g = 9.8 m/s2
wbalance = 50.0N
wtrue = ?
what formulas will I use? Please help
