I had to do this problem for school but I couldn't figure out how to do it so I need some help. Lets say I weigh 165 pounds and im standing on a scale in an elevator that accelerates to 1 meter per second and then stays at the constant speed of 1 mps. How would my weight change during the acceleration and then balance out when the elevator stops accelerating? Any help would be great. Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
