You walk into an elevator, step onto a scale, and push the “up” button. You also recall that your normal weight is 625 N. Start answering each of the following questions by drawing a free- body diagram.

(a) If the elevator has an acceleration of magnitude 2.50 m/s2, what does the scale read?

(b) If you start holding a 3.85-kg package by a light vertical string, what will be the tension in this string once the elevator begins accelerating?
