Question #17513
A controller spots two planes at the same altitude flying toward each other (see figure). Their
flight paths are
20 SW
45 SE
. One plane is 150 miles from point P with a speed of
375 miles per hour. The other is 190 miles from point P with a speed of 450 miles per hour.

a) Find parametric equations for the path of each plane where
is the time in hours, with
0t 
corresponding to the time at which the air traffic controller spots the planes.
b) Use the result in part (a) to write the distance between the planes as a function of
c) Use a graphing utility to graph the function in part (b). When will the distance
between the planes be minimum? If the planes must keep a separation of at least 3
miles, is the requirement met?
