Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. What does the question mean when it says B relative to A? what do i have to do?

Please post the full question.
3. I other words If the question says what is the velocity of a relative to b (or v.v) or what is the bearing of b relative to a (or v.v) it is very different if it says "is b a relative to a"

Get the difference between the two position vectors. It is just asking you for the distance between the two vectors. Which is the difference between the two

At 8 am 2 ships A and B are at (+3)km and (5-2)respectively, from a fixed point P
Their velocities (A)(2-) and (B) (-+4)

Show that t hours after 8 am the position vector of B relative to A is given by ((4-3t) +(-5+5t))

fine the position vector of A, then of B, then subtract them and that's B relative to A.

The position vector of B relative to A is the vector that goes from A to B i.e. .

And

Ah this brings back memories.. thanks all
