If the tension in the cable of $1000 \;kg$ elevator is $1000\;kg$ weight, the elevator

a) is accelerating upwards b) is accelerating downwards c) may be at rest or accelerating d) may be at rest or uniform motion

1 Answer

Answer: may be at rest or uniform motion.
Since the tension in the cable, $ T=m \times g$ ie (1000 kg weight)
it implies that $a=0$ i.e., the elevator may be at rest or uniform motion.
