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.
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.
