The tire has a diameter of 36 inches.

The truck is going 55 mph.

There is a car behind it going 55 mph also.

What is the minimum distance the car can be behind the truck so it won't get hit by the rock when it flies out of the tire?

I did a problem like this before... but I never had to include the diameter of the tire.

The answer has to be reported in inches.

Can anyone please explain this problem to me?
