Plane B is flying north with a velocity Va - 600
km/h. A smaller aircraft A passes under it in the
60° direction shown. However, to passengers in
plane B it appears that plane A is moving east.
Determine the actual velocity of A and the
velocity of A relative to B.
2. Car A has a speed of 100 km/h, which is
increasing at the rate of 8 km/h each second.
Car B also has a speed of 100 km/h but is
turning and also slowing down at the rate of 8
km/h each second. Determine the acceleration
of B relative to A.
Car A has a forward speed of 18 km/h and is accelerating at 3 m/s2. An observer is riding
the Ferris wheel at B. which is rotating at a constant rate Q-3 rev/min. Determine the
velocity and acceleration of the car
A relative to the observer B.
a - 3 rev/min
R = 9 m
