When traveling in a car and turning to the right which way does your body go and why?
Your body goes right, too, though it is trying to resist and feels like its going another way. As long as you remain belted into the car, you are going wherever the car goes. As long as the tires have traction the car can turn. The whole car is resisting, too, as it tends to want to remain going in one direction.
What is the relative velocity between two bodies moving with same velocity along the same direction?
If two bodies are moving in the same direction at the same velocity, then the relative velocity will be zero.
Why does a passenger lean towards the left when a car turns right?
Answer: The source of the centripetal force that forces you to go around the turn is the friction between your seat and your thighs. Your upper body doesn’t feel a force and so continues in the same direction. Your lower half is pulled out from under you by seat friction to the right, leaving you leaning to the left.
Can the relative velocity of two bodies?
Yes, when two bodies move in opposite directions, the relative velocity of each is greater than the individual velocity of either body .
What happens when two identical vehicles travel at the same speed?
Two identical vehicles (same size and mass) travel at the same speed, let’s say 50 km/h, in opposite directions, and they collide with each other head-on.
What is the combined distance between the two cars?
Hint: Think about how much closer the cars get each hour. They are approaching each other at an effective speed of 135 km/hr… Hint: The total distance between the two cars is initially 810 km. Thus, in order to meet, the combined distance they travel is 810 km.
What is the point of Impact in a two-vehicle collision?
The “point of impact” remains stationary in the two-vehicle case, in the exact same way as in the one-vehicle-and-rock-wall case. From the point of view of vehicle 1, there’s no difference. Now, if vehicle 2 was stationary and vehicle 1 hit it at 50 km/h, that would make a big difference compared to the rock wall.
What happens when two vehicles are stopped at a two-way stop?
If two vehicles are stopped at a two‑way stop and one of the drivers wants to turn left, this driver should yield the right‑of‑ way to the other vehicle. The only exception is if the left‑turning vehicle is already in the intersection and has started to make the turn. In this case, the other vehicle must yield. 46
