Re: Twice as fast?

And reference frames are relevant even and non-relevant speeds.

You just get to use newtonian mechanics to solve your equations.

In engineering school, my dynamics prof solved everything this way. The book taught dynamics using Cartesian coordinates. He just created whatever reference frame suited the question.

It didn't occur to me until now that it might have something to do with reference frames.
