Question

A rocket takes off from Earth's surface, accelerating straight up at 43.2 m/s2. Calculate the normal force (in N) acting on an astronaut of mass 80.9 kg, including her space suit. (Assume the rocket's initial motion parallel to the +y-direction. Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer.)
