    hello

    How can I calulate the distance between two moving points by following the road and no by tracing a direct line?

    At the same moment, two trains leave Chicago and New York. They move towards each other with costant speeds. The train from Chicago is moving at speed of 40 miles per hour, and the train from New York is moving at speed of 60 miles per hour. The distance between Chicago and New York is 1000 miles. How long after their departure will they meet?

    But seriously, you would have to generate/calculate a route and grab the information from there.
