## Homework Statement

Suppose that during the launch of a rocket from the surface of the earth, an astronaut onboard the rocket stands on a bathroom scale and measures her weight to be 3.6 times her normal weight. Determine the acceleration of the rocket.

## Homework Equations

Fnet [tex]\sumF = ma[/tex]

or maybe involving Tension?

Fnet [tex]\sumF = T - Fg = ma[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried the second equation but can't get anywhere. I ended up with T - 35 = a.
