Homework Help: Spaceship and Asteroid Collision

  1. Jan 16, 2017 #1
    1. A spaceship is traveling through the Asteroid belt, located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The figure below shows the spaceship and a group of nearby asteroids.
    2. Which ones (if any) are bound to collide with the spaceship, and why?
    (see attached photo)

    3. I am very confused on this one and do not know where to start. I would assume the asteroid going 700m/s.
