The giant monster NADIAZILLA is dangling Doug by his belt. Doug weighs 650 N. If NADIAZILLA accelerates Doug upwards at 3.5 m/s^2 before flinging him into the Ottawa River, what is the tension in Doug's belt?

    The tension in Doug's belt will be equal to the applied force (the force that the moster exerts on Doug). F(weight) = 650 N a = 3.5 m/s^2 g = 9.81 m/s^2 F(weight) = mg m = 650/9.81 = 66.26 kg F(net) = ma F(net) = (66.26)(3.5) = 232 N F(net) = F(applied) - F(weight) F(applied) = F(net) + F(weight) F(applied) = 232 + 650 = 882 N Asnwer: 882 N
