New Mathcad blog: "Show your calculation skills with Mathcad - and win!"

Here's a chance to show off your Mathcad skills. What's in it for you? This new Think - Hear - Share t-shirt.

The problem statement:

A fly is sitting at a distance of h from a man with a fly swatter. At time t=0 the fly is pursued by the man who has a constant acceleration of 1. The fly flies in a straight line away from the man with an acceleration of 0.6t. What is the largest initial separation, h, for which the man can intercept the fly?

See the full rules before submitting >>

Good luck!
