What will a spring scale read for teh weight of a 58 kg woman in an elevator that moves (a) with a constant upward speed of 6.0 m's, (b) with a constant downward speed of 6.0 m/s, (c) with upward acceleration of 0.33g, (d) with downward acceleration of 0.33g, and (e) in free fall?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm having trouble with a and b. (c and d are easy enough because the g is given and e is weightless because it's free fall.) I don't know where to start!
