Answer to Question #19093 in Mechanics | Relativity for john
two trains move on parallel tracks in opposite directions away from each other. one moves at the rate of 50m/s, while the other moves at 70m/s. what is the magnitude of the velocity of each train relative to the other?
Obviously, we just have to add their velocities Magnitude of relative velocity is 50 m/s+70 m/s = 120 m/s
