coordinate will be toward the blackboard. Now we’ll place the car on a sheet which we can move to the right relative to the lab bench. We’ll start the car moving toward the blackboard and then drag the sheet to the right along the lab bench at a second speed. Your job is to describe the car’s velocity vector, (speedand direction)relative to the lab bench.
Assuming that the car moves toward the blackboard (the direction) with a speed of 2 [m/s] relative to the sheetand that the sheet moves to the right on the bench (the xdirection) at a speed of 1 [m/s], the vector velocityof the car relative to the bench is:Question #3 y
Assuming that the car moves toward the blackboard (the direction) with a speed of 2 [m/s] relative to the sheetand that the sheet moves to the right relative to the bench(the direction) at a speed of 1 [m/s], the speedof the car relative to the bench is:Question #4 yx
The angle the car’s velocity vector relative to the benchmakes with the x direction is:Question #5
