Consider the following forces: 1 - A downward force of gravity. 2 - A force by the ”hit”. 3 - A force exerted by the air. Which of the above forces is (are) acting on the tennis ball after it has left contact with the racquet and before it touches the ground? 1. 1 and 2 2. 2 and 3 3. 1 and 3 4. 1 only 5. 1, 2 and 3 Question 2 part 1 of 1 10 points An elevator is being lifted up an el- evator shaft at a constant speed by a steel cable as shown in the figure be- low. All frictional effects are negligible. steel cable Elevator going up at constant speed In this situation, forces on the elevator are such that 1. the upward force by the cable is greater than the sum of the downward force of gravity and a downward force due to the air. 2. the upward force by the cable is equal to the downward force of gravity. 3. the upward force by the cable is greater than the downward force of gravity. 4. None of these. (The elevator goes up because the cable is being shortened, not be- cause an upward force is exerted on the eleva- tor by the cable.) 5. the upward force by the cable is smaller than the downward force of gravity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
