Describe the difference between someone who is accelerating and someone who is only moving at a constant velocity.   A person moving a constant velocity will ‘feel’ how fast they are moving. A person accelerating does not feel the acceleration. A person who is accelerating will ‘feel’ that acceleration, but the person moving at constant velocity will not feel the motion. Both of the above. None of the above.
