1. Summary: Three Coordinates (Tool) Velocity Acceleration Reference Frame Reference Frame Path Path x x r y Observer’s measuring tool r y O Observer Observer (x,y) coord (n,t) coord velocity meter (r,q) coord r q

2. Choice of Coordinates Velocity Acceleration Reference Frame Reference Frame Path Path x x r y Observer’s measuring tool r y O Observer Observer (x,y) coord (n,t) coord velocity meter (r,q) coord r q

3. Translating Observer Rotating Two observers (moving and not moving) see the particle moving the same way? “Translating-only Frame” will be studied today No! Observer’s Measuring tool Path Which observer sees the “true” velocity? Observer B (moving) (x,y) coord A both! It’s matter of viewpoint. This particle path, depends on specific observer’s viewpoint “relative” “absolute” (n,t) coord velocity meter Observer O (non-moving) Point: if O understand B’s motion, he can describe the velocity which B sees. r (r,q) coord q Two observers (rotating and non rotating) see the particle moving the same way? No! “translating” “rotating” “Rotating axis” will be studied later. Observer (non-rotating)

4. A B O 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)

5. y 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 x B O 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.

6. A B O Relative Motion (Translating Only) • x-y frame is not rotating(translate only) y Y Direction of frame’s unit vectors do not change x 0 X Notation using when B is a translating frame. Note: Any 3 coords can be applied to Both 2 frames. 0

7. A B O Understanding the equation Path Translation-only Frame! Observer B A O & B has a “relative” translation-only motion This particle path, depends on specific observer’s viewpoint Observer O reference framework O reference frame work B Observer B (translation-only Relative velocity with O) Observer O Observer O This is an equation of adding vectors of different viewpoint (world) !!!

8. Solution y x 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 ?

9. Translational-only relative velocity You can find v and a of B

11. Is observer B a translating-only observer B relative with O Yes Yes O Yes No ?

12. 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 10 m o 30 Relative Motion: (Cicular Motion) Consider at point A and B as r- coordinate system 30 A A o o B B 30 D ? O.K. ? M Point: Most 2 unknowns can be solved with 1 vector (2D) equation.
