A person stands on a bathroom scale in a motionless elevator. When the elevator begins to move, the scale briefly reads only .75 of the person's regular weight. Calculate the acceleration.

A 6500 kg helicopter accelerates upward at .6 meters per seconds squared while lifting a 1200 kg car. What is the lift force exerted by the air on the rotors. What is the tension in the cable (ignore its mass) that connects the car to the helicopter?

A window washer pulls herself upward using a bucket-pulley apparatus. How hard must she pull downward to raise herself slowly at constant speed? If she increases this force by 10% what will her acceleration be? The mass of the person and bucket is 65 kg.
