Let's say an there are two objects or vehicles, both of them travel towards the same direction with constant velocities, the other object being slower than the other. How do you calculate at which point the faster object passes the slower one?
Say the slower object starts it's movement at 50 meters and the faster one starts at 0 meters. If they both keep moving forward with their respective velocities, when does the faster object pass the slower one?
For example, if the slower object has v = 25km/h and the faster one has v = 50km/h. They both start moving at the same time, though the slower one starts 50 meters ahead. When do they pass each other?
I can't think of anything but backbreakingly manually taking advantage of the relativity of their speeds, shouldn't there be some kind of trick to this?
