Velocity and Displacement

A plane is sitting on a runway, awaiting takeoff. On an adjacent parallel runway, another plane lands and passes the stationary plane at a speed of 47 m/s. The arriving plane has a length of 32 m. By looking out the window (very narrow), a passenger on the stationary plane can see the moving plane. For how long a time is the moving plane visible?

  1. How long does it take to go 32 meters at 47 m/s?

    32 = 47 t
    t = 32/47
