Lecture 6 Purdue University, Physics 220 2 y x 2-Dimensions X and Y are INDEPENDENT! Break 2-D problem into two 1-D problems
Lecture 6 Purdue University, Physics 220 3 Relative Velocity We often assume that our reference frame is attached to the Earth. What happen when the reference frame is moving at a constant velocity with respect to the Earth? The motion can be explained by including the relative velocity of the reference frame in the description of the motion. The ground velocity of an airplane is the vector sum of the air velocity and the wind velocity. Using the air as the intermediate reference frame, ground speed is: Example airplane V(PG)=V(PA) +V(AG)
