 Question 582597: On a straight inclined track, a ball rolling uphill takes 1.3 seconds to slow down from a velocity of 135 cm/s to a velocity of 65 cm/s. On the same track, how much time would it take a rolling ball with velocity 85 cm/s to reach a velocity of 0? Explain your reasoning. Do not use algebra. I know that it took 1.3 sec to decrease it's velocity from 135 cm/s to 65 cm/s by 70 cm/s. If it took 1.3 sec for that, would the velocity decrease from 85 cm/s to 0 cm/s at about 2.5 sec, which I believe I'm incorrect on. Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 583403: A train leaves Chicago heading for New Orleans traveling at a constant 50 mph. Assume a perfectly straight track and the distance to New Orleans to be exactly 1000 miles away. At the exact time the train leaves, an eagle leaves New Orleans headed for Chicago at a constant 75 mph and following the same tracks the train is on. When the eagle meets the train, he immediately reverses direction and heads back to New Orleans, whereupon when arriving at New Orleans he immediately turns back around and flies back to the train again. Again, when meeting the train, he turns back again to New Orleans and keeps repeating this until they both reach New Orleans. Assuming there is no delay in reversing direction for the bird (upon reaching the train, he immediately turns and is headed back at exactly 75 mph), how far will the bird have flown by the time the train reaches New Orleans?
