1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An assembly line has a staple gun that rolls to the left at 1.0 m/s while the parts to be stapled roll past it to the right at 3.0 m/s. The staple gun fires 10 staples per second. How far apart are the staples? 2. Relevant equations I am lost but I still came up with an answer. 3. The attempt at a solution sq rt of ((1.0 m/s)^2+(3.0m/s)^2) I got 3.16 m/s So because there are 10 staples per second there are 0.32 meters between each staple. PLEASE HELP..Thanks in advance.
