##### Reference no: EM13544630

Consider an elevator that is hanging from a strong cable. The elevator is initially at rest. It then accelerates upwards for 2 seconds, due to the cable pulling. It then then slows down, still moving upwards, until it comes to a stop. Pick out any and all answers that are correct: Compared to the weight of the elevator, the tension in the cable is

A) the same as the weight during the entire motion, due to Newton's third law

B) less than the weight while it is slowing down.

C) less than weight while it is speeding up

D) greater than the weight while speeding up

E) always greater than the weight during the whole time, or the elevator would not have been able to move up at all.
