Unformatted text preview: w , just try to switch to the moving frame of the cart. Image youre moving with the cart, the velocity of the water now becomes v w-v(t), then it become natural that )) ( ( t v v w ! represents the amount of water coming into collision with the cart in the time interval dt....
