If one holds 72 minutes for shabbas to be over and they are staying by someone who holds 50 minutes and they make havdalla by 50 min can the 72-minute-people participate in their havdalla to fulfill the "obligations" of besamim and getting hanah from the fire? I am not asking about fulfilling the actual havdalla part.

Sources please.

I know the Rambam,my question is the participation of the besamim and aish – sam Jul 25 '14 at 14:17
It's also Shulchan Arukh and all achronim... – Double AA Jul 25 '14 at 14:17
I know that's talking about in teffilah ,but not the rabbinic al hakos – sam Jul 25 '14 at 14:18
??? Did I misunderstand you in my editing? You can say Havdalla on a Kos from Plag HaMincha. This is undisputed to the best of my knowledge. – Double AA Jul 25 '14 at 14:20
