If you were standing in an enclosed car moving at constant velocity, would you have learned in some special way to compensate for the car’s motion? What if the car were moving with constant acceleration? Explain.

  • physics -

    If at constant velocity you can not tell it is moving without looking out the window.

    If accelerating, you must compensate for example by leaning forward if accelerating forward.
