Homework Help: Physics AP C

Posted by Steven on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 9:08pm.

Two trains, each having a speed of 22 km/h, are headed at each other on the same straight track. A bird that can fly 60 km/h flies off the front of one train when they are 70 km apart and heads directly for the other train. On reaching the other train it flies directly back to the first train, and so forth. (We have no idea why a bird would behave in this way.) What is the total distance the bird travels before the trains collide?
