when you ride in a train that passes a train moving in the opposite direction, the other train appears to rush past you at a greater speed than if you were watching from a parked car at a crossing.

how does the speed of your train affect your impression of the passing train's speed?

plzzzzzzzzz help me.i don't get this question and its a BIG part of my h.w grade, so..... plz help me

thanks :]

It makes sense that the faster one or both trains go will affect the impression of speed.
