Think of the problem in the frame of reference of one of the trains. Think of the bird flying continuously at 58 km/hr until the separation = 0. How long does that take? How far does the bird fly? The more difficult part is (a). If it takes no time to turn around and accelerate back up to 58 km/hr, I don't think there is a limit to the number of trips.Rock00 said:
