4.14 Relative velocity


Measure the relative velocity of mobile Object 1 relative to mobile Object 2. The angle is measured from the positive X axis, the positive sense is the opposite of clockwise. Also, this element can be used to measure the relative velocity (in this case the total velocity) of a Mobile with polar circular motion relative to its center of rotation.

Object 1:Name of first mobile.
Object 2:Name of second mobile.
v:Magnitude of the relative velocity.
ang:Angle of the relative velocity vector.
