Your mass is 65 kg. You stand on a bathroom scale in an elevator on Earth.

(a) What force would the scale exert when the elevator moves up at a constant speed?

(b) What force would the scale exert when it slows at 2.1 m/s2 while moving upward?

(c) What force would the scale exert when it speeds up at 2.1 m/s2 wile moving downward?

(d) What force would the scale exert when it moves downward at a constant speed?

(e) What force would the scale exert when it slows to a stop at a constant magnitude of acceleration?

2. Relevant equations

f=ma

fg=mg

fnet=mAnet

Ff=μῦFn

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly have no idea what to do with all these Y forces going everywhere..Can someone walk me through the process of solving this problem?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP!!
