Two cars A and B are moving along in a straight line. Car A is moving at a speed of 80KMph while car B is moving at a speed 50KMph in the same direction, find the magnitude and direction of the relative velocity of car B with respect to A.

Expert Answer:

In this question we are going to see the relative velocity of car B with respect to A,then we will put the velocity of car A to rest then we get the velocty of car B will be -30km/h.
 
Therefore relative velocity of carB with respect to car A will be 30km/hr and direction will be opposite to direction of A.
