Problem 23RQ

A bird sitting in a tree is traveling at 30 km/s relative to the faraway Sun. When the bird drops to the ground below, does it still go 30 km/s, or does this speed become zero?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 23RQ Step 1 : We have a bird travelling with velocity v = 30 km/s relative to Sun , we need to calculate the speed of the bird when it drops to the ground below , will it still be 30 km/s or does it become zero Step 2: Considering the data given Velocity of bird v = 30 km/s relative to Sun The birds falls on the ground with relative to Sun, but the inertia is acting upon the bird , which will help the bird to maintain its current velocity. So when the bird falls on the ground relative to Sun it will still have the velocity as v = 30 km/s due to inertia
