This month’s Geek Challenge is about the quickest way to get from A to B.
An object is released from rest at Point A. Influenced by the constant vertical acceleration of gravity, it slides on a frictionless path to Point B (if it's helpful, imagine a soap box derby car).
The following paths represent the vertical profiles of the racing courses from the starting line, A, to the finish line, B.
Which of the 4 paths depicted gets the object from A to B in the least time?
Extra credit: Name the least time path.
