There are two football players standing 48 meters apart (player A and player B). They start running towards each other. Player A acceleration is 0.5 m/s2 and player B acceleration is 0.3 m/s2.
How much time passes before each player collides with each other?
When they collide how far has the first player(player A) traveled?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:09 pm ad1c9bdddf
I will use the notation "_" to designate a subscript.
Total distance traveled = S_Total = 48 m.
Total, effective acceleration = A_total = 0.5 + 0.3 ...
This is a step-by-step solution showing the time taken for two objects travelling towards each other with uniform accelaration.
