A particle A is moving with a constant velocity of 10 m/sec. Another particle B is moving with a constant but unknown velocity. At an instant, the line joining A and B  makes an angle of 30 dgree with velocity of A. Find the minimum possible magnitude of velocity of B. If they collide after some time.

Let VB makes angle 'x' with the line joining A & B.Then component of both velocities perpendicular to line AB must be equal if they are to meet(collide).

VB Sinx = VA Sin(30degree) = 10*1/2 = 5

VB to be min. Sinx must be max. as their product is a constant.So max(Sinx)=1

VB = 5 m/s

Here it simply uses the fact that minimum distance of a point from a given line is perpendicular from that point to that line.
