    Elevator Tension

    my professor failed to mention how to deal with tension and what particular equations to use.

    An elevator and its load have a combined mass of 2000 kg. Find the tension in the supporting cable when the elevator, originally moving downward at 14 m/s, is brought to rest with constant acceleration in a distance of 50 m.
