Hello,
I need help with the following question. I couldn't find a equation for the distance between the trains. How do i deal with train A is 70km north of train B? and trains traveling in different direction.
At 8 am, train A is 70km north of train B. Train A traveling west at 50km/h and train B traveling east at 60km/h. How fast is the distance between the trains changing at 12 pm.
I have my diagram here
known rates
da/dt = 50km/h
db/dt = 60km/h
unknown rates
dc/dt t=4
Help and Thanks
I solved myself, I just noticed i can form a triangle with a+b .
