**Question:**

**A bird is tossing between two cars moving towards each other on a straight road. One car has a speed of 18 m/h while the other has the speed of 27 km/h. The **

**bird starts moving from first car towards the other and is moving with the speed of 36 km/h and when the two cars were separated by 36 km. What is the total **

**distance covered by the bird? What is the total displacement of the bird?**

**Solution:**

The relative speed of the cars = 27 + 18 = 45 km/h

When the two cars meet together, time t is given as

t = distance between cars/relative speed of cars

= 36/(27+18)

t = 4/5 h

Therefore, distance covered by the bird in 4/5 hours = (36)(4/5) = 28.8 km
