# Relative velocity help? watch

1. You are riding a 450-kg horse at 14.1 km/h east along a desert road. You have inertia equal to 60.0 kg. A police officer driving past (whom you know and who knows your inertia and the horse's inertia) measures your speed relative to the police car and calculates total kinetic energy of you and your horse to be 16.32 kJ .

How should I initiate this problem?
