A fully loaded slow-moving freight elevator has a cab with a total mass of 1400 kg which is required to travel upward 45 m in 4.7 min starting and ending at rest The elevator's counterweight has a?

The elevator's counterweight must have a mass of 1400 kg in order to balance the loaded cab. The work done is given by W = F*d, where F is the force required to lift the cab and d is the distance traveled. Using this, we can calculate the work done by the elevator to lift the cab upward 45 m. The elevator's power output can also be calculated using the work done and the time taken to complete the task.

What is a space elevator?

A space elevator is a concept for a "lift" of sorts to raise things out of the gravity well of the earth. It's basically a long, strong "cable" that is tied to earth and to a counterweight out in space. Materials are loaded into "cars" on the cable, and the units "crawl" up the cable to break free of earth's gravity. A link can be found below.

What did Elisha Otis invent?

Elisha Otis is known for building the first modern passenger elevator which used his invention of a safety device which prevented the car from falling if the cables broke. The elevator safety brake was first demonstrated at the Crystal Palace Exposition in New York in 1854. After ascending in his new elevator, Otis called for the elevator's cable to be cut with an axe. Instead of falling, the elevator platform held, secured by a brake using toothed guiderails in the elevator shaft and a spring-loaded bar that automatically caught in the toothed rail of the elevator car if the cable failed. Today, the Otis Elevator Company is the world's largest company in the manufacture and service of elevators, escalators, moving walks and people-moving equipment.

How does a tube fed 22 bolt action rifle work?

Cartridges are loaded into the tubular magazine, and a spring pushes the cartridges towards the action. When the action is cycled, one cartridge is released by the cartridge stop, and is pushed onto the cartridge elevator. This raises the cartridge to a point where the bolt pushes it off the elevator, and into the chamber. After that, if fires like any other .22 rifle.

How Counter weight calculated in elevators?

The counterweight in elevators is typically designed to be around half the weight of the elevator car when fully loaded, to help balance the weight and reduce the amount of work the elevator motor needs to do. It is calculated based on the maximum load capacity of the elevator car and the weight of the car itself when it is empty. The counterweight moves in the opposite direction of the elevator car to help offset the weight imbalance and ensure smoother operation.
