I know that if the relative velocity of two objects are the same,(For example: 
one stick at rest in a flowing stream and the other stick being pulled through 
still water at the same velocity at which the stream is flowing) then the 
water resistance would be the same. But, I don't understand why. What laws of 
physics are applied to this?
