Homework Help: Elevator Questions

  1. Feb 5, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    You are standing on the floor of an elevator that starts, at rest, at the first floor of a building and then moves at constant speed to the tenth floor where it stops. Then you reverse the motion, ending where you started at the first floor.

    Describe the two important forces that act on you during this motion.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    One of the Forces would be gravity right? What is the other one?

    Would the elevator ever slow up or speed up? Would you feel it? If so what might that force be?
