This physics video tutorial explains how to find the normal force on a scale in a typical elevator problem. It discusses how to calculate the apparent weight of a person when the elevator is at rest, moving upward with constant speed, downward with constant velocity, accelerating upward or downward. It uses free body diagrams and net force calculations to find the apparent weight shown on a scale which is equivalent to the normal force of the scale on the person.
