A hotel elevator ascends 200 meters with a maximum speed of v= 5.0 m/s. It has a constant (net) acceleration of a +/- 1.0m/s^2. This means that the bottom floor is at 0.0meters and the top floor is at 200 meters. At rest, the v=0. when going up, it fights against gravitational acceleration of g=-9.8m/s^2. when going down, gravity "helps". if you weigh 110lbs on earth at sea level, how much would you weigh while going up in the elevator?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now im assuming the question was meant to confuse you with all that information and the only relevant info is gravity and the weight of the person? Would anyone mind helping me understand if this is correct and give me help as how to solve the problem
