# A boy stands on a weighing machine inside a lift.When the lift is going down with an acceleration of g/4 the machine shows a reading of 30kg.when the lift goesupward at acceleration g/4the reading will be............pls solve

10 years ago

When the lift is going in downward direction with an acc. of g/4, net acc. of the lift

g`=g-g/4=3g/4. Weight of the body=mg`=m3g/4

Now the weight of the body is due to the normal reaction of the floor if the lift which is

N=mg`=3mg/4

3mg/4=30

m=12

Now when the lift is going up with an acc. of g/4 then net acc. is g+g/4=5g/4

N=m5g/4

N=12*5*10/4=150kg

when lift goes downwards then seudo force acts on boy in upward direction...

if a is the accleration of lift then

mg - ma = net weight=30g         ...........1         (given)        g is accleration due to gravity

m(g-a) = 30g

m=40kg

when lift goes upward then seudo force acts in downward direction so now net weight

mg + ma = W

40(a+g) = W

50kg = W                 ans
