Which example best represents balanced forces? an elevator stopped on the third floor a basketball shot into a hoop a sled sliding down a snowy hill a tow truck pulling a car out of a ditch

THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER ๐Ÿ‘‡

The first one is correct. Balancing forces, according to Newton’s 2nd law F = ma, do not mean any acceleration. The elevator is under the influence of gravity which is trying to accelerate it and the tension in the cable, which is pulling up. Since it is not moving up or down, the up and down forces must be equal and opposite, or balanced forces.
