THE ELEVATOR PROBLEM
When you go in an elevator, you might feel that all you blood rushes to your toes. You might also feel like you are being pulled up. This all has to do with elevator physics. If you stand on a scale while you are going up and down an elevator, you will notice that your weight on the scale will change as you move up and down and change direction.My question is If you are standing on a scale in an elevator, why does the scale read different numbers as you move up and down at different speeds? My glogster will explain why this happens.
