__________
In this video you will learn how to find the Rate of Change of the Distance between the two cars as they approach the same intersection, given their individual speed and distance from the intersection at time t.

A car is travelling at 50 miles per hour due south at a point 1/2 mile north of an intersection. A police car is travelling at 40 miles per hour due west at a point 1/4 mile east of the same intersection. At that instant, the radar in the police car measures the rate at which the distance between the two cars is changing. What does the radar gun register?
