I think top floor is better.

If cars are parked on roof, mid floor and ground floor of those buildings which of the cars would be salvageable?

You mean mangled cars will be salvageable?

Now, are cars humans?

There is no way as safe as on the roof of the building because there is nothing which can collapse on you
u are wrong...falling from an altitude of such will kill u....ground impact

You see how Igbos reason.

On top of a building that is collapsing means you are safe

Lol

That was simply a joke which added an extra spice! Really, if you are on top, nothing can fall on top of you na grin

The roof is the safest in a building collapse

Not totally true.
Depends on how the building caves in.
An instance where the middle of the building caves in and pulls the mid section of roofs down first along with it, the extreme sides of the top floor will definitely collapse on the roof when it finally falls.
So the roof might not be totally safe in such instance.
The only difference is that those at the top floor are more likely to be rescued first from the rubble when the rescue team start escavating.
But in all honesty, don't pray you experience such situations.

There is where the fuel tank is located.
Explosion.

Who in his mind goes and put a fuel tank on top of a building so that when the fuel tank is leaking the petrol starts dripping all the way from the top floor to the ground floor. Is even illegal to put a fuel tank on top of a building

What if the roof cave in first?

When the roof caved in that is the best place because you will be on top of the roof it is better than the roof caving in on your head than the roof to cave in when you are on top of it

Please you have to read The Thread. Which is the safest part of the building to be on for tall buildings it is the roof too much tall buildings have concrete roofs

These are highrise buildings, can you please educate us on how it is much safer to be on the roof top of these buildings when the are collapsing?

When buildings collapse What kills people mostly is things falling on them concrete and other materials falling on their bodies and heads. When you are on the roof there is nothing to fall on you and even when the building is collapsing down it does not collapse at a fast speed it collapse at a much slower speed because the floors below have to buckle up first. In case of Fire the roof is the worst place to be

The major problem here the universities in Nigeria teach nothing. If I universities while teaching students this question will not be asked at all and everybody will know the answer. The car at the ground floor and middle floor with a pancake. The cast on the room we just have a bit of under damage. Cars are not people yet but you have to understand when a building collapse is equal abscess gradually. Go and watch the video of the World Trade Center. Nobody from the bottom floors were rescued only a few on the top floor, when the building collapsed. 11 people were rescued from the World Trade Center most of them were on the higher floors because the lower floors were completely buried and pulverized after the collapse

Please can you go and read the topic what it is about he is asking when a building is collapsing which floor is the safest to be on not jumping off the building. He is talking about a floor which is safest to be on. When a building collapses it is not the same thing as jumping computer building it collapses at a much slower rate

To my analysis the wing of the plane at the safest place to sit because mostly when a plane crashes it is Ida head first or tail first which touches the ground. Also seat where the wing is the area which has the most aluminium in constructing the plane and is the strongest part of the plane

We know that sometimes a flaw in building design, poor quality of building materials and supervision amidst other factors can cause a high rise building to collapse. In the event of a building collapse, which floor is likely to have survivors after the building collapses, what part of the building can be deemed the safest.
none

oh I pity for ur upbringing....did I mention anything about jumping out a collapsing building? So u think if u are on d last floor and the building is collapsing it will drop u as per slow motion abi ....ode....the impact on the ground will break ur bones....u fool

From Issac Newton's law of Inertia, nowhere is safe, safer or safest!

Only GOD ALMIGHTY can decide who should survive any disaster.

And you think the roof will cave in while the other structural members will keep standing?

Your logic ain't working.

Let's leave god out of this and talk about reality. You brought up a very good point you need to know a tall building is made by floors and when the building is collapsing each floor of the building act like a suspension, each floor needs to call up one by one which reduces the speed of the collapse watch this video from September 11th and you will get what I am saying that the collapsing of the building is reduced. How do you think 11 people were pulled out of World Trade Centre alive. Nobody from floor 50 below was pulled out alive. A lot of disasters it is also the same thing with building collapses the people on the higher floors have better chances of surviving because there is no mass and inertia on top of them. Something in motion stays in motion but when you have something which prevents the motion from existing like each floor actually has to collapse individually which reduces the speed of the collapse that is why when you look at the World Trade Center building, as the building started collapsing from top to bottom when did coal of started getting to the lower floors the speech started reducing. Just watch as the the collapsed get to the lower floors the speed reducers
