A baseball pitcher with a 90-mi/h fastball throws a ball while standing on a railroad flatcar moving at 110 mi/h. The ball is thrown in the same direction as that of the velocity of the train. Applying the Galilean velocity transformation equation, the speed of the ball relative to the Earth is 1 2 3 4 5 20% 20% 20% 20% 20% 1 2 3 4 5 1. 90 mi/h 2. 110 mi/h 3. 20 mi/h 4. 200 mi/h 5. impossible to determine
The Galilean velocity transformation gives us u x = u x + v = 110 mi/h + 90 mi/h = 200 mi/h.

Suppose the observer O ’ on the train in the figure below aims her flashlight at the far wall of the boxcar and turns it on and off, sending a pulse of light toward the far wall. Both O ’ and O measure the time interval between when the pulse leaves the flashlight and it hits the far wall. Which observer measures the proper time interval between these two events? 1 2 3 4 25% 25% 25% 25% 1 2 3 4 5 1. O 2. O 3. both observers 4. neither observer

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
