Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A man weighs 439 N on Earth. What would he weigh on Jupiter, where the free-fall acceleration is 25 . 9 m / s 2 ? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Answer in units of N. 002 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A person stands on a scale in an elevator. The maximum and minimum scale readings are 637 . 2 N and 294 . 3 N, respectively. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Assume the magnitude of the acceleration is the same during starting and stopping, and determine the weight of the person. Answer in units of N. 003 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points Determine the person’s mass. Answer in units of kg. 004 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points Determine the acceleration of the elevator....
