Flipping Physics Posted October 7, 2014 Share Posted October 7, 2014 Name: Relative Motion Problem: Solving for the angle of the moving object Category: Kinematics Date Added: 07 October 2014 - 03:02 PM Submitter: Flipping Physics Short Description: None Provided It is not obvious in all relative motion problems how to draw the vector diagrams. Sometimes the velocity of the object with respect to the Earth is not the hypotenuse of the velocity vector addition triangle. Here we address how to handle a problem like that.
