The loaded cab of an elevator has a mass of 3.10 × 103 kg and moves 240. m up the shaft in 21.0 s at constant speed. At what average rate does the force from the cable do work on the cab?



Expert Answer

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
