yes i thought of that also. truly though i don't think the most sophisticated plumb bob science could come up with would measure such "force vectors" if they did indeed exist.

it is true that in the case of plumb bob knowledge of outside conditions is not necessary.
i'm fairly certain though that a plumb bob would no matter where you locate it in the elevator point directly perpendicular to the floor.
