I do have the following motion problem:
Let's supose that two belt conveyors (chained) are running at V1 and V2 (V1<V2). A parcels travels from CV1 to CV2. When reaches the junction point between conveyors, it will acelerate from V1 to V2. "t" is the requiered time to be fully transferd on the second conveyor(it depends on its mass, lenght, friction...).
What will be the ratio between "t" and the ideal time "T" when at junction point the parcel will "fly" at V2 (T=lenght/V2)?
