Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, let's define power, so we know what we have and what we will need to determine. \[P = F \cdot v\] We are given the velocity at which the elevator travels, now all we need to do it determine the forces involved. I spot only two, gravitation and friction. \[F = F_g + F_f = m \cdot g + F_f\]
