The apparent weight of an object increases in an elevator while accelerating upward. A moongphaliwala sells his moongphali using a beam balance in an elevator. Will he gain more if the elevator is accelerating up?

Expert Answer:

No, because the apparant weight of the standard weight on the other side of the beam will also increase.
