1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 65-kg woman descends in an elevator that briefly acclerates at 0.20g downward when leaving a floor. She stands on a scale that reads in kg. (a) During this acceleration, what is her weight and what does the scale read? 2. Relevant equations ƩF = ma mg - Fn = m(0.20g) 3. The attempt at a solution I have an answer that states that the scale needs to exert a force of 0.80mg which will give a reading of 0.80m = 52kg, but I do not understand why this makes sense.
