The **Time to Overtake** calculator computes the amount of time needed to overtake a vehicle based on the speeds of the two vehicles and the head start.

**INSTRUCTION:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**h**) Distance between Vehicles (i.e. the head start) - (
**V**) Velocity of Chase Vehicle_{1} - (
**V**) Velocity of Lead Vehicle_{2}

**Time to Overtake (t):** The calculator returns the time in minutes. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu. The calculator also returns the distance V_{1} will have to travel to overtake.

- Time to Overtake: Computes the distance in which the overtake will occur at constant velocities.
- Distance to Overtake: Computes the distance in which the overtake will occur at constant velocities.
- Speed to Overtake before a Distance: Computes the speed required to intercept within a distance boundary.
- Speed to Overtake in Time: Computes the speed required to intercept within a time boundary.

The formula for the time required to overtake is:

t = h / (V_{1} - V_{2})

where:

- t = Time required for vehicle 1 to overtake vehicle 2.
- h = Distance between the vehicles or the head-start.
- V
_{1}= Velocity of vehicle one - V
_{2}= Velocity of vehicle two
