- Helicopter in an Elevator 4 answers
I got this micro helicopter to play with, you know that cheap double bladed ones you can find for $25 or so. Anyway last night I was on bed trying to sleep and I got this idea, what if we put the helicopter inside a box and then seal the box, then we hover the helicopter inside the box. While the helicopter is hovering what will happen if we move the box left and right or up and down? will the helicopter move with the box without me controlling it so it's position will be relative to the box? or will it keep the position relative to the room and the box will move until it hits the blades? and why?
Sorry if this question is not about physics, physics was never my favorite and please if this is answerable here try to provide a "for dummies" answer :)
UPDATE: I just remembered something, when we are in a plane, we move with the plane! so logic says the helicopter will move with the box, correct?
Please excuse my MS Paint skills.
