A lynx running at 90 km/h tries to catch a rabbit that is going at 18 m/s and is 20 m ahead of him. Find out if the lynx will achieve its goal before 2s, the time it would take for the rabbit to reach the burrow

90 km/h = 25 m/s

 

relative speed: lynx-rabbit = (25 - 18) m/s = 7 m/s

 

Time for lynx to catch rabbit = 20/7 s ≈ 2.9 s

 

So rabbit will get to burrow before lynx catches it.
