A cable lowers a 1400 kg elevator so that the elevator's speed increases from zero to 4.0 m/s in a vertical distance of 5.6 m .

What is the force that the cable exerts on the elevator while lowering it? (Assume that the system is the elevator and Earth.)

What is the force that the cable exerts on the elevator while lowering it? (Assume that the system is the elevator only.)

here,

initial speed , u = 0

final speed , v = 4 m/s

vertical distance , h = 5.6 m

let the accelration be a

v^2 - u^2 = 2 * a * h

4^2 - 0 = 2 * a * 5.6

a = 1.43 m/s^2

let the tension in the rope be t

m * g - t = m * a

1400 * 9.8 - t = 1400 * 1.43

t = 11718 N

the force that the cable exerts on the elevator while lowering it is 11718 N for both parts

A cable lowers a 1300 $\mathrm{k}\mathrm{g}$ elevator so that the elevator's speed increases from zero to 4.0 $\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{s}$ in a vertical distance of 6.4 $\mathrm{m}$.

A fully loaded, slow-moving freight elevator has a cab with a total mass of 1300 kg, which is required to travel upward 47 m in 3.5 min, starting and ending at rest. The elevator's counterweight has a mass of only 800 kg, so the elevator motor must help pull the cab upward. What average power is required of the force the motor exerts on the cab via the cable?

An elevator is pulled upward so it moves with increasing upward speed?the force exerted by the cable on the elevator is constant and greater than the downward gravitational force exerted by Earth. When the elevator is moving up medium-fast, the force exerted by the cable on the elevator changes abruptly to just balance the downward gravitational force of Earth?the sum of the forces that the cable and Earth exert on the elevator is now zero.
