(f) And 212BBmvK=yields vB= 2/iGm R.(g) The answer to part (f) is incorrect, due to having ignored the accelerated motion of “our” frame (that of body A). Our computations were therefore carried out in a noninertial frame of reference, for which the energy equations of Chapter 8 are not directly applicable. 101.
