# Race To Infinity!!!

#### Guest

If two objects we allowed to travel in the same direction, both are continually increasing speed at say 10km per minute, but one of the objects is given a head start by say 20km.

Would the first object ever reach the second one.?
Ie would the second one reach zero accelleration when it reaches infinity, allowing the first objet to catch up to it.

There is no absolute last number (ie "infinity"), this post makes too much no sense for me to even answer, if the 2 objects were to be getting faster and faster, then thats exactly what they would be doing, just getting faster. Are you saying if they both reach infinity kms/h because if you are then this post has no meaning as the word infinity is a word meaning "to never end" just as numbers do. But if Lee reads this, i wouldnt mind a cheque from him for \$infinity!!

Well will the first object ever catch up to the second?
Will they both reach the same accelleration? Ie the same never ending accelleration.

Re:Re:Re:Race To Infinity!!!

No.
How can the 2nd catch the first if they are travelling at the same rate of accelleration that never ends? Like a set a parellel lines.

You mean like a set of parallel curves!
