## Homework Statement

There's a 75 kg passenger in an elevator

a. what is the passenger's apparent weight when acceleration is zero?

b. what is the passengers apparent weight when acceleration is positive?

c. what is the passengers apparent weight when acceleration is negative?

## Homework Equations

w=mg

apparent weight=w*(1 + a/g)

apparent weight =w*(1 -a/g)

## The Attempt at a Solution

a. w=75kg*9.8m/s=735N

b. apparent weight=735*(1 + a/g)

a=F/m I'm not sure how to find F here?

c.
