## Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics (3rd Edition)

(a) $W = 9.8\times 10^5~J$ (b) $P = 1.96\times 10^4~watts$
(a) Since the elevator moves at a constant speed, the tension in the elevator cable is equal in magnitude to the weight of the elevator. We can find the work done by the motor. $W = T~d$ $W = (mg)~d$ $W = (1000~kg)(9.80~m/s^2)(100~m)$ $W = 9.8\times 10^5~J$ (b) We can find the power supplied by the motor. $P = \frac{W}{t}$ $P = \frac{9.8\times 10^5~J}{50~s}$ $P = 1.96\times 10^4~watts$
