Step 1

Given:  mass (m) = 3 × 103 kg

distance (d) = 240 m

time (t) = 21 s

Find: Average rate at which force from the cable do work on the cab.

Step 2

Since, the elevator is moving at constant speed thus there i no net force.

So, T =  mg

T = 3000 × 9.8 = 29400 = 29.4 kN

Step 3

The work done by the tenion for...
