Two cars are in a drag race. The first starts and continues to uniformly accelerate up to the finish line some time later. The second car follows the first out of the starting box 1s afterwards traveling exactly as it did. Will the cars be the same distance apart throughout the race? How much time will there be between their successive crossing of the finish line ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I think the answer to the first question is yes, and to the second one : 1s.

What do you think about that ?

Thanks
