1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 1000 kg elevator is held up by two cables. If each able exerts a force of 6000N upwards upon the elevator, find the elevator's acceleration. 2. Relevant equations Fg=mg FNET=ma 3. The attempt at a solution I started with a force diagram to help me and then I think I'm supposed to use the FNET=ma formula. So I plugged in the variables as follows: (6000+6000)-Fge=1000a How do you solve for acceleration in this problem when I also need to find the Force that gravity exerts on the elevator (Fge)? Would the answer be 2.2m/s^2?
