Relative Velocity in Two Dimension

For motion along a straight line, the concept of relative velocity can be easily extended to include motion in a plane or in three dimensions. Suppose that two objects A and B are moving with velocities VA and VB (each with respect to some common frame of reference, say ground or earth). Then, velocity of object A relative to that of B is:
VAB = VA - VB

And similarly, the velocity of object B relative to that of A is:
VBA = VB - VA
Therefore, VAB = - VBA
And, =
