# If a body of mass m is placed on a weighing machine which is placed in the lift and Lift is moving up with a = g. Then what is the ratio of Apparent weight to Actual weight of the body ???

When Lift is moving up with a = g

then

$R-mg=mg$

$R=2mg$

Apparent weight = 2 (Actual weight)

So the ratio of  Apparent weight to  Actual weight of the body is equal to 2
