1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Based on the trends in your data, predict how riding an elevator while standing on a scale will affect your weight measurement. Try it and describe the forces on you. 2. Relevant equations It's a philosophical question; no math needed. 3. The attempt at a solution I did the first part, so all I'm left with is "describe the forces on you." Gravity obviously, the normal force, tension? I'm sure I'm over-thinking this. Is there a force specifically for accelerating, or is it still considered the normal force or tension?
