Adding Velocity Vectors You can add or subtract velocity vectors. e.g. An airplane flying at 80 m/s [N] relative to the air encounters a 10 m/s [N] tailwind. What is the airplane’s velocity relative to the ground? The velocity relative to the ground is 90 m/s [N]. 80 m/s 90 m/s 10 m/s

Frames of Reference It is relevant to give the velocity of the airplane relative to both the air and the ground, and we can do so because both the air and the ground are inertial frames of reference. An inertial frame of reference is any object or place that is travelling at a constant velocity (and that velocity may be zero).

Why Relative Velocity is Useful Relative velocity is useful when solving problems such as: “Football player A is running at a velocity of 4.0 m/s [N] toward football player B, who is running at a velocity of 3.0 m/s [S]. If they start from a position 25 m apart, how long is it before they collide?”

Why Relative Velocity is Useful “Football player A is running at a velocity of 4.0 m/s [N] toward football player B, who is running at a velocity of 3.0 m/s [S]. If they start from a position 25 m apart, how long is it before they collide?” Rather than considering 2 objects, we can consider the equivalent situation of B standing still and A running at 7.0 m/s [N] and travelling a distance of 25 m.
