Homework Help: Tricky kinematics problem

  1. Aug 8, 2010 #1
    at an instant two particles, A and B are separated by 'l' distance. A particle is going north with a uniform velocity of u. and the speed of B is v. initially the velocity vectors are perpendicular. always velocity of B is aimed towards A . find when they converge.(meet)
    (v>u)




    2. Relevant equations



    I dont know even how to start because the trajectory seems curved and seemed to need some higher math.
    however I am well aquianited with calculus. but I just dont know how to use it here.
