Can you survive by jumping off a falling elevator?


This is a very dangerous incident. The enclosed elevator will suddenly stop after falling from a height. So it’s unthinkable for the person inside. But this is possible. Elevators are becoming more and more popular these days. Good or bad. At work Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. What will you do? Would it be better to jump on time?

To begin with, we have to start thinking that we are falling down with the elevator. As soon as the elevator reaches the bottom, it stops abruptly, and so do we. It is unthinkable.

What if we jump? Let’s do a little thought experiment. We jumped up just in time when the elevator hit the bottom. If we look back at this incident with a slow motion from the side, we can go up in time with a jump speed. The elevator will always be down. As we jump, the speed at which we fall back will not be as high as the elevator. Mathematically speaking, we have to subtract the speed at which we jump from the elevator speed to get the speed back down.
