1-D Kinematics of Particles
Particle 𝐴, which is initially at rest, wants to meet Particle 𝐵, however they are 𝑋𝑌𝑍 ft away from one another. The motion of particle 𝐴 heading toward 𝐵 is defined by the relation: 𝑠 = 1/𝑎2 where 𝑠 and 𝑎 are expressed in ft and ft s 2 , respectively. On the other hand, Particle 𝐵 travels toward 𝐴 with an initial velocity of 0.25 ft s that increases at the rate of 0.50 ft s 2 . With the motion of each particle described above, determine when and where they will meet each other in reference to Particle 𝐴’s initial position.
