Relative Velcity: Two particals moing in different direction

Two particles leave the same point at time t=0, each one over a straight line with constant acceleration a. If theta is the angle of the two lines, how varies the distance d between the particles with time?

Solution Summary

A good question to learn relative motion in a plane. The particles are moving with acceleration in different directions. The distance between them is calculate as a function of time.
