did you see my earlier solution?
you can easily, easily answer how long the bee will fly for, the point in time when the bee will get crushed. but to measure the number of times that the bee , should it exist given the above conditions initially given in the question, that is impossible, you will reach an infinite series.
EVEN, given the size of the bee, the distance between the two cars, when minutely small, the bee is still going to bounce so much that it will be uncountable.
maybe a wikipedia article on summation of gp to infinity is needed.
here, read this
unfortunately no. you just know it will happen, but to count the number of times the fly flies between both cars, is impossible to calculate.
you try and use brute force calculations lor, let us know when the fly has flied the hundredth time.. i got to 10, then realised it was silly.
Btw, I can tell you that the total time spent by the bee flying from Car 1 to Car 2 = 0.0375 hour. The formula is 3t/4 where t is the time of collision.
