A racing formula

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

HELLO TO ALL... I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE COULD HELP ME OUT WITH THE FORMULA FOR THIS EXAMPLE: For Instance, If I am driving 60 MPH in one direction and another car from the opposite direction pulls a U-turn to Follow Me... How long will it take for him to catch up to Me?

These are the variables I know: My Speed, My Distance from point A to B.

Can someone please help me. Thanks In Advance

I think more data is needed for this problem in order for someone to chime in and assist me.

<---------------------------------------------> Total Distance 0.5 miles/880yards

<----------------------------------------------i Drive <- @Speed 65 MPH

A Car in this direction-----------------------> Must U-Turn to catch up <----------

WHAT FORMULA DO I USE TO FIGURE HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE HIM TO CATCH UP TO ME AND AT WHAT SPEED IS HE DRIVING in order to CATCH UP?
