| Let us determine what the speed of the car will be, if it is converted into m / s, when from the condition of the task we know that it is 72 km / h:

1 hour is the same as 3600 seconds;

1 kilometer is the same as 1000 meters;

72 * 1000: 3600 = 20.

Let’s compare the speeds of a motorcycle and a car, because we know from the condition that the speed of a motorcyclist is 20 m / s:

20 m / s = 20 m / s.

That is, objects move with equal speed, which means that the distance between them will be constant.
