Objects A and B are at the origin. If object A moves to #(-5 ,2 )# and object B moves to #(-1 ,-8 )# over #4 s#, what is the relative velocity of object B from the perspective of object A?
Relative velocity (approximately):
Here is a graph of the resultant positions:
The relative displacement of
The angle of displacement (to
(calculator used for this)
The distance from
Since this distance was covered over a period of
the average speed must be
velocity is a combination of speed and angle.
