You can play catch with a softball in a bus moving with constant speed on a straight road, just as though the bus were at rest. Is this still possible when the bus is making a turn at constant speed on a level road? Why or why not?
Solution 16DQ Step 1 of 2: The bus when it is making a turn at constant speed on a level road, the direction of the bus is turning due to the external force acting on the bus and it not in its original direction. Since the bus floor and the players inside bus are in contact, both the bus as well as the players inside will change the directions during turning of the bus. Whereas the ball which has left the player will be moving in the original path.
