My teacher told me he calls this a "baseball question"... why?! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A tourist being chased by an angry bear is running in a straight line toward his car at a speed of 4.0 m/s. The car is distance d away. The bear is 26 m behind the tourist and running at 6.0 m/s. The tourist reaches the car safely. What is the maximum possible value for d? This problem doesn't need to be solved but my teacher asked in class WHY he would call this a "baseball question" It wasn't homework but I'm curious now... I have no idea? Any ideas?
