Name: Two cars pass each other with constant velocities

Description: Two cars pass each other; each one has a constant velocity. The animation shows the cars from a top view.

Vectors v1 and v2 are shown at two instances of time. They can be dragged to a common origin so that the change in velocity can be determined.
