# Checking force exercice

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Here is the statement :

An elevator cabin of mass 567 kg combine a mass of people inside the cabin of 180 kg.The cabin is pulled upward by a cable with a constant acceleratuon of 6 m/s².

What is the tension T of the cable

**2. Relevant equations**

I used the second law of Newton :

F_{net} = ma

with m = 567 + 180 = 747

**3. The attempt at a solution**

so T+ F_{g } = ma

and T= ma+ mg

so T= 11810.07 N

IS IT CORRECT ??
