An elevator (mass 4100 kg) is to be designed so that the maximum acceleration is 0.0300g.

What is the maximum force the motor should exert on the supporting cable?

[tex]\sum F=m.03g[/tex]

[tex]T=mg(1+.03)[/tex]

41385 N <--this IS correct

What is the minimum force the motor should exert on the supporting cable? I thought this would just be weight?? But that is not correct

N

I am clearly misunderstanding what the question is asking
