Elevating the Tension

APPH12-6T5KCF

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

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

$3{,}000\text{ N}$

B

$11{,}000\text{ N}$

C

$12{,}000\text{ N}$

D

$15{,}000\text{ N}$
