Problem 1RQ

As you read this, how fast are you moving relative to the chair you are sitting on? Relative to the Sun?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 1RQ The relative speed between two object is defined as the rate of change of separation between them. Now while reading the problem, I am sitting on the chair. So the separation between me and my chair is not changing. Hence the relative speed between me and the chair is zero. So I am moving at speed of 0 m/s with relative to the chair. The earth is moving at a speed of 30 m/s with respect to sun. Now since I am on the earth and not moving relative to earth. I am also moving with earth at the same rate. So I am moving at a rate of 30 m/s with respect to sun.
