Problem 1.12

Task:

Three points are located at the vertices of an equilateral triangle whose side equals \( a \). They all start moving simultaneously with velocity \( v \) constant in modulus, with the first point heading continually for the second, the second for the third, and the third for the first. How soon will the points converge?

Solution:
