An elevator weighing 10 000N is supported by a steel cable. Determine the tension in the cable when the elevator is accelerated upward at 3.0 m/s2

A) 7.0kN

B) 10.0 kN

C)11.6 kN

D) 13.1 kN

E) 40.0 kN

2. Relevant equations

F=ma W=mg (g=9.8m/s^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

W=mg

10 000=m(9.8)

m=1020
