Particle KinematicsRelative Motion
Section Objectives:a.Use relative motion analysis to relate velocities and accelerations between particles moving independently.
Relative Motion: Translating AxesPosition ofB relativeto fixedref. framePosition ofA relativeto fixed ref. framePosition of B relative totranslating ref.frame on A.Velocity: Acceleration:
A small ship capable of making a speed of 6 knots through still water maintains a heading of due east while being set to the south by an ocean current. The actual course of the boat is from A to B, a distance of 10 nautical miles that requires exactly 2 hours. Determine the speed vwof the current and its direction measured clockwise from the north.
