1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 75 kg student is standing atop a spring in an elevator that is accelerating upward at 3.0m m/s2. The spring constant is 2700 N/m By how much is the spring compressed? 2. Relevant equations I know I have to use the spring constant formula in this So 75kg*9.8m/s2=735N And I thought that I just needed to just divide by 2700N/m and that equals .272222 3. The attempt at a solution So I put in .2722m and it said I was wrong? Is there something missing?
