A person in a stationary, non-moving elevator drops a coin and it reaches the floor 0.6 seconds later. Now he repeats the experiment with the elevator moving. Would the coin reach the floor in less time same time or more time, if it were dropped when the elevator was: traveling down at a constant speed or accelerating downward?

• physics -

it would reach at the same time. if the elevator was traveling down at contact speed, gravity will be another force added to it. slowing down the acceleration because gravity is pulling on it
