A truck travels at a constant speed of 28.0 m/s in the fast lane of a two-lane highway. It approaches a stationary car stopped a the side of the road. When the truck is still 125 m behind the car, the car pulls out into the slow lane with an acceleration of 2.6 m/s^{2}. How long will it take the truck to reach the car? (Answer is 6.32 s)

2. Relevant equations

N / A

3. The attempt at a solution
