## Homework Statement

Elevator weighs 1400 kg with an initial velocity of 12 m/s (moving downward). With a constant acceleration, the elevator comes to a stop in 41 m. What is the tension on the elevator cable?

T=m(a+g)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm having trouble finding the acceleration of the elevator.

I got it, a=1.75 m/s$$\hat{2}$$
by v$$\hat{2}$$=v$$\check{i}$$$$\hat{2}$$+2a($$\Delta$$x)
