I don't understand this questions..can you please help me with this..Can you do it with step by step discussion type answer..Thank You!
QUESTION NO.1 The velocities of airplanes A and B are measured with respect to a frame of reference S fixed to the ground. Airplane A is traveling northeast (45 ͦ measured counter clockwise from the x axis) with a speed v_A= 140 m/s and airplane B is traveling southeast (45 ͦ measured clockwise from the x-axis) with a speed v_B=200 m/s. (a) What are the x and y components of each velocities? (b) Find the velocity v_A/B, which is the velocity of A as measured by B.
QUESTION NO.2 An observer notices that a moving clock runs slow by a factor of exactly 10. What is the speed of the clock?
Components of Plane A:
Components of Plane B:
The relative velocity is equal to the difference in the 2 velocities as measured from Plane B:
The magnitude of which can be determined from the Pythagorean Theorem:
And the direction using the tangent:
