Day 23: Challenging CVPM Whiteboards

We are wrapping up the CVPM unit and today we presented and discussed the most challenging whiteboards. The group that prepared the whiteboard for this problem did a great job:

A hungry bat finds the mother lode of flying insects between the headlights of two bicycles cruising towards each other through the Herrick Lake Forest Preserve. The bikes are 100 meters apart at the start and one has a speed of 8.0 m/s and the other a speed of 10.0 m/s. The bat has a speed of 20.0 m/s. Assume that the bat flies from the front tire of one bike straight to the front tire of the other bike, then turns around with no delay and heads towards the other bike. This is repeated until both bikes and the bat are at the same place. Determine how far the bat flies during this flying feast.
