Path of a heat seeking torpedo

  1. Jul 10, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A missile and an aircraft are separated initially by a distance 'L' on the y axis. The aircraft starts moving along the x axis with constant velocity 'u'. The missile is heat seeking which makes it point towards the aircraft at all times. The velocity of missile is 'v' where v > u. Find the length of the path of the missile and its general equation.
