2/8 Relative Motion (Translating axises)

• Sometimes it is convenient to describe motions of a particle “relative” to a moving “reference frame” (reference observer B)

• If motions of the reference axis is known, then “absolute motion” of the particle can also be found.

• A = a particle to be studied

• B = a “(moving) observer”

Reference frame O

Reference frame B

• Motions of A measured by the observer at B is called the “relative motions of A with respect to B”

• Motions of A measured using framework O is called the “absolute motions”

• For most engineering problems, O attached to the earth surface may be assumed “fixed”; i.e. non-moving.

frame work O is considered as fixed (non-moving)

A

where

= position vector of A relative to B (or with respect to B),

and are the unit vectors along x and y axes

(x, y) is the coordinate of A measured in x-y frame

Relative position

• If the observer at B use the x-y ** coordinate system to describe the position vector of A we have

Y

• Here we will consider only the case wherethe x-y axis is not rotating (translate only)

X

**other coordinates systems can be used; e.g. n-t.

The passenger aircraft B is flying with a linear motion to theeast with velocity vB = 800 km/h. A jet is traveling south with velocity vA = 1200 km/h. What velocity does A appear to a passenger in B ?

To increase his speed, the water skier A cuts across the wake of the tow boat B, which has velocity of 60 km/h. At the instant when  = 30°, the actual path of the skier makes an angle  = 50°with the tow rope. For this position determine the velocity vA of the skier and the value of
