Elevating the Tension

APPH12-6T5KCF

A 1500 kg elevator initially moving upward at 7.0 m/s slows to a stop in 3.5 seconds.

Assuming there is no friction involved in the stopping procedure, what is the tension ($T$) in the supporting cable while the elevator slows to a stop?

A

3,000 N

B

11,000 N

C

12,000 N

D

15,000 N
