The Column

Task Force Baum consisted of 57 vehicles, which made a long column. We did in the following table a calculation about the length of this column. We added the average length of a vehicle under the assumption that the column was bumper against bumper. Then we did the calculation for vehicle distances of 25 and 50 meters.
