1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A physics student stands on a bathroom scale in an elevator which is not moving. The scale reads 564 N. The elevator then accelerates downward at 1.97 m/s2. What does the scale read during this acceleration? 2. Relevant equations F=ma, W=mg 3. The attempt at a solution I thought at first the answer should be 0 N, but that is wrong...then I tried using Newton's 2nd Law F = 564 N, a = 1.97, but when I plugged this in it was stilled wrong...what equation should I use?
