I have a problem in physics that I am struggling to solve.

Consider two objects 1 and 2 positioned at points A and B respectively

on a vertical line. Point A and Point B are seperated by a distance X.

object-1 will start moving toward its right at Velocity V and Object-2 starts moving with velocity 2V towards object-1. Here Object-2 from point B will move in such a way that it always travels towards object-1.

So path taken by object-2 will look something like a curve. So Tangent

drawn from object-2 on the curve will always intersect with object-1.

Then

1) At what time both objects will meet ?

2) what will be the equation of the Curve taken by object-2 ?

Please help me..

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

N/A
