## Homework Statement

A car is traveling at 80 km/hr in a school zone. A police car is at rest in the parking lot of the school. It takes the policeman 0.5 sec to react before he begins accelerating after the speeder with an acceleration of 8 m/sec2.

(a) How far has each car traveled when the police car catches the speeder?

(b) How fast is the police car going when it catches the speeder?

(c) Make a sketch of the position of both cars as a function of time?

## Homework Equations

There may be different equation(s). These are just the main ones we're using for this unit.

## The Attempt at a Solution

My setup is correct, but I'm having difficulty finding T. I tried plugging variables in equations, and it seems nothing's working. Once T is found, I'll hopefully be able to solve parts (a), (b), and (c) with ease.
