Unformatted text preview: Solution for On-Line Homework 9 Reference Frames II Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 9.1() Problem: The Galilean transformations between refer- ence frames are summarized as: x = x ut t = t a = a v = v u One reference frame is traveling with a velocity u with respect to the other, assumed to be at rest. Which frame is moving, the primed or the unprimed frame? Select One of the Following: (a-Answer) the primed frame (b) the unprimed frame (c) neither (d) both have to be moving Discussion All of these equations give this type of relationship: x is the position of the object as it appears in a reference frame moving with velocity u with respect to the frame where the value x was measured (lab frame). 1 So, the primed frame is the moving frame. a and t being the same in both the primed and unprimed frames means acceleration and time are the same every- where, it doesnt matter what your relative speed is to another inertial reference frame. (No relativity here!)another inertial reference frame....
