More about Galilean Relativity
We can transform measurements from one moving frame to the other with
rA = rB + v t
vA = vB + v
These transformation equations may be seen in the following schematic diagram:
While the two observers see different values for positions and velocity, they will agree on Newton's Laws of Motion.
