A rocket takes off from Earth's surface, accelerating straight up at 43.2 m/s^{2}. 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.)

Step 1

Given,

Step 2

When astronaut is on surface of earth then forces acting on astronaut are following,

(a): Normal Force acting in upward direction.

(b): Weight of astronaut due to gravity.

Step 3
