  • Q:

    A container of water with a small, floating object is placed inside of an elevator. Given that only the container is in the elevator (no people), what happens to the object (compared to the water level) if the elevator accelerates upward?

     

    A

    The acceleration effectively increases g, which results in more of the object being visible above the water line

    B

    The acceleration effectively increases g, which results in less of the object being visible above the water line

    C

    The acceleration effectively decreases g, which results in less of the object being visible above the water line

    D

    There is no change in the water level
