Elevator of 2000kg is suspended by a single cable calculate the forces on it while it is at rest.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F=ma

well it's at rest so there is 0 acceleration, does that mean the formula is not usable or is it simply 2000N?

partc asks what the value of all forces is at 4.0 m/s^2, would that just be F=2000(4) then F=8000N
