Unformatted text preview: The first question in the prelecture. The iim more of a quantum physics kinda guy. m I've learned all of this before, so it's fairly simple for me. I've The most confusing concept was question number 2 which involved the The moving walkway and the dog. Relative motion. moving It was stated we will not use accelerated frames of motion, but a single example It to demonstrate the difficulty of dealing in those frames would be interesting to see, if only once for my first semester in college.. I do not 100% understand how you know that the acceleration vector in a case of do centripetal acceleration is pointed towards the center of the circle of it's rotation. please talk about how you get the formula for centripetal acceleration. Could you please spend some more time dicussing reference frames. Could I would like to talk about the velocity vectors and how to set up your velocity equation. It is difficult for me to put the velocity in terms of one of the other objects involved in the equation,. For example, what is the difference between the velocity of the dog with respect to the girl and the velocity of the dog with respect to the ground. respect Box number 5 is not clear.

Vdog,belt = 8m/s 8m/s dog,belt Vbelt,ground = 2m/s 2m/s belt,ground A) 6 m/s B) 8m/s C) 10m/s A) Because the girl is actually moving and the two vectors are opposite, so together they make 6 m/s so B) Because the girl is not moving relative to the belt, and the dog is going 8 m/s relative to the belt, the dog is also moving 8 m/s relative to the girl.. C) The dog and girl are running towards each other so when you add the C) two velocities together it would be 8+2. two Physics 211 Le cture3, S 12 lide 12 What is the speed of the dog relative to the girl?
