Im on my last attempts and I dont want to get this wrong. THanks! What will a spring scale read for the weight of a 73- woman in an elevator that moves downward with constant speed of 6.0 ? What will a spring scale read for the weight of a 73- woman in an elevator that moves downward with acceleration of 0.30 ? What will a spring scale read for the weight of a 73- woman in an elevator that moves in free fall?

Add the acceleration a of the elevator to that of gravity. For the first, a = 0, for the second a = -0.30, for the third, a = -g.
