At an antique car rally, a Stanley Steamer automobile travels north at 38 km/h and a Pierce Arrow automobile travels east at 51 km/h. Relative to an observer riding in the Stanley Steamer, what are the x- and y-components of the velocity of the Pierce Arrow car? The x-axis is to the east and the y-axis is to the north. What's the magnitude and direction of V(x) and V(y)?
