A stunt car is driven along a flat train car. The stunt car

  1. Oct 18, 2015 #1
    A stunt car is driven along a flat train car. The stunt car is moving toward the engine of the train. How would you calculate the velocity of the stunt car relative to earth?

    Im in physics 11 and we are almost done our velocity chapter and this question was on our review.

    Why not just add the car speed to the train speed if they are in the same direction (like walking on a moving sidewalk)?
