1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 95 kg man jumps, therefore exerting a force of 1000 N on a bathroom scale. The scale is in a motionless elevator in Earth's gravity. What is the man's acceleration? 2. Relevant equations Newton's 2nd Law: F=ma Possibly Fg=mg ? 3. The attempt at a solution I tried just using F=ma. therefore, it'd be: 1000 N=(95kg)(a) a=10 m/s^2 But this does not take into consideration the earth's gravity.
