Question

Seeta is moving due east with a velocity of 1 m/s and Geeta is moving due west with a velocity of 2 m/s. What is the velocity of Seeta with respect of Geeta?


Solution

It is a one dimensional motion. So, let us choose the east direction as positive and the west as negative. Now, given that
$$\displaystyle v_{S}$$ = velocity Seeta = 1m/s
and $$\displaystyle v_{G}$$ = velocity of Geeta = -2m/s
Thus, $$\displaystyle v_{SG}$$ = velocity of Seeta with respect to Geeta
$$\displaystyle = v_{S}-v_{G}= 1-\left ( -2 \right )= 3m/s$$
Hence, velocity of Seeta with respect ot Geeta is 3 m/s due east.
