If you were standing in an enclosed car moving at constant velocity, would you have learned in some special way to compensate for the carâ€™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.
