The chair I use in my home office. A good balance of budget friendly price and quality. And my 18 month old loves looking in the reflective surface on the back, so there's that.

Formula:v_rel = v₁ - v₂

Introduction to Relative Velocity Calculator

Relative velocity is the velocity of one object as observed from another object. This formula represents the difference between the velocities of the two objects, denoted as v_rel, v₁ represents the velocity of the first object, and v₂ represents the velocity of the second object.

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The velocities are real numbers, and the result is derived by subtracting the second velocity from the first velocity.


This calculator computes the relative velocity between two objects based on their individual velocities.
