The Hare and the Tortoise Round 2Classical Mechanics Level 3
The hare and the tortoise decide to have another race. But instead of running in the same direction toward the finish line, they decide to run in opposite directions toward finish lines located at equal distances from the starting line as shown in the figure.
The race takes place and the referee sees both animals finish at the same time in the frame at rest with respect to the ground. Assuming that the two animals move at a constant velocity from start to finish, what is the result of the race as seen from the frames of the two moving animals?
