# Is it a Galilean transformation?

1. Oct 8, 2009

### gijoe

in a 1 d system.

x measured WRT an inertial frame k, are the following, valid Galilean transformations:

x=x'- sin(wt)
and
x=x'3

Not sure where to go with this...
I cant find any relevant material anywhere.

### lanedance

Galilean to me would imply a trasformation between inertial (no accleration) reference frames

this would mean the dervative of one wrt the other would be constant & represent teh relative velocity

neither of the examples appear to satisfy that criteria
