Setting a world record in a 100 m race, Maggie and Judy cross the finish line in a dead heat, both taking 10.0 s. Accelerating uniformly, Maggie took 2.00 s and Judy 2.80 s to attain maximum speed, which they maintained for the rest of the race.

(a) What was the acceleration of each sprinter?

(b) What were their respective maximum speeds?

(c) Which sprinter was ahead at the 6.00 s mark?

Maggie

Judy

neither

(d) By how much was that sprinter ahead?

ok..so i've talked to like 10 million people..and nobody seems to know how to do it..

i have no idea where to start...i have to find the acceleration first...im just not sure if their initial velocities would be 0 or what?
