TeresaM: Welcome to ChaCha!
TeresaM: What can I help you with tonight?
You: Hello Teresa! A question on physics here
TeresaM: Ok, what is it
You: If there were a massive elevator, and inside it were a helicopter hovering mid flight, if I called the elevator to the top story would the helicopter move in synch with the elevator, or would the bottom of the helicopter just hit the elevator?
You: are you there?
TeresaM: Yes, that is beyond me, let me transfer to someone who may be able to help!
You: ok thank you

KATHYE: Welcome to ChaCha!
KATHYE: Hello how are you tonight?
You: Hello KATHYE!
KATHYE: hi there
You: Im excellent yourself?
KATHYE: wonderful thanks'
You: Ok so I have a question involving elevators
KATHYE: ok I will do the best I can
KATHYE: what is the question?
You: Imagine a giant elevator, and housed within it is a helicopter hovering. if I called the elevator to the top story of a building would the helicopter move in synch with the elevator, or would the bottom of the helicopter just hit the elevator?
You: Well actually i suppose its a helicopter question
You: you might just want to redirect me to one of those guys
KATHYE: Oh my goodness, I think you are right
KATHYE: this is out of my league
KATHYE: I am not even sure who to transfer you too
KATHYE: let me give it a try.
You: would you mind sending me to a helicopter person then, perhaps they could help
You: Thank you anyways!
KATHYE: hold on a minute
KATHYE: ok you are welcome
KATHYE: just give it a minute or 2 to transfer you
You: Ok take your time!
KATHYE: ok thanks have a great night
You: same to you!
KATHYE: thanks very much
KATHYE: it isn't transfering you, I am not sure what the problem is, you might have to try your search again
You: ok thank you regardless!
KATHYE: I am froze, go ahead and try closing out if you can
KATHYE: youre welcome
You: ok, goodnight!
KATHYE: good night to you too

JaredJ: Welcome to ChaCha!
You: Jared, how is it going?
JaredJ: Its going great, How's it for you?
You: you are one of the few guys I have talked to tonight. It is ok, I imagine you are my final hope for this question
You: ive been redirect twice
JaredJ: I will do my best to answer your question.
You: people are having trouble, but it deals with helicopters
JaredJ: How can I help?
You: Imagine a helicopter hovering, the physics of it
JaredJ: Allright.
JaredJ: Is that your question? The Equations?
You: now put that helicopter in an elevator. If the elevator were to move either up or down, would the helicopter move in synch with the elevator? or just crash into its roof or floor?
You: no
JaredJ: Interesting. I like the question.
You: Thank you for your help!
JaredJ: Be just one moment while I look for some answers for you.
You: I suppose it is wether the force pushing against the floor stay constant, enough so that it will move with the elevator
You: Thank you!
JaredJ: Actually I'm thinking about the theory of the pressure of the area. and if the area changes with the elevator and the shaft. The air pressure should make the helicopter go up and down with the elevator such as in a downdraft or an updraft.
JaredJ: Thats what I'm looking for.
You: Wow, I didnt think about that
You: Thank you!
JaredJ: Not a problem.
You: I was thinking about building a scale model, but that would take a little too much time you know. It probrably wouldnt be very accurate either
You: Am I still connected?
You: damnit
