Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Akshat121 on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 2:50am.

Distance runners often run around an approximately circular trajectory. However, since some runners are running at a larger radius than others, they must be given an advantage in the beginning so that the race is fair.

If the path of the runner running at a greatest radius of 20 m is 100 m long, how far behind in m should the runner at the smallest radius start? The smallest radius is 15 m.
