Elevator (1) ! An elevator repairman (mass 73 kg) sits on top of an elevator cabin of mass 655 kg inside a shaft of a skyscraper. The cabin is suspended by a 61 m long steel cable of mass 38 kg. He sends a signal to his colleague at the top of the elevator shaft by tapping the cable with his hammer. Elevator (2) ! Tension in cable from the weight of elevator + man T = mg = (73 kg + 655 kg)(9.81 m/s 2 ) = 7142 N ! The linear mass density of the steel cable is = M 38 kg = = 0.623 kg/m L 61 m v= T = 107 m/s !
