Newton’s 2 nd Law Problem Exercises: 1. What is your weight in Newtons? 2. If your scale reading on earth is 585 N, what is your mass? What would be your scale reading on the moon if its g is 1.6 m/s 2 3. From the sample problem on page 128, what force would the scale exert when: a. the elevator moves up at a constant speed? b. it slows at 2 m/s 2 while moving upward c. it moves down at a constant speed? 4. A 4500 kg helicopter accelerates upward at 2 m/s 2 . What lift force is exerted by the air on the propellers? 5. The maximum force a grocery sack can withstand and not rip is 250 N.

The scale reads 836 N. a. As the elevator moves up, the scale reading increases to 936 N, then decreases back to 836 N. Find the acceleration of the elevator. b. As the elevator approaches the 74 th floor, the scale reading drops to 782 N. What is the acceleration of the elevator? c.
