Relative velocity: Is the speed at which something effectively travels towards something.
To explain it simply:
- If I am stationary and an m50 travels towards me at 300 mps, then the m50 is approaching me at 300 mps.
- If I'm traveling away from the m50 at 200 mps however, then the m50 is only closing the distance at a rate of 100 mps as my speed means it takes longer for it to catch up to me.
By using this idea, we can make ships such as the m50 take slightly longer to reach us in battle, giving us more time to shoot them!
