## Homework Statement

My teacher gave our class a set of questions that are supposed to be challenging. This question has particularly stumped me... I can make a diagram, but I really don't know what to do next:

Savannah has just stepped out her front door, only to find that the school bus, located at the end of her driveway 30.0 m from her door, has just begun to accelerate away from her at 1.10 m/s

^{2}. Savannah immediately begins to chase the school bus at her top speed of 6.40 m/s. Will she catch the bus? Yes- where/when does she catch up to it? No- how close will she get?

## Homework Equations

These are just guesses.

c

^{2}=a

^{2}+b

^{2}

[tex]

v_{ave} = \Delta x / \Delta t

[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

__Savannah:__

v

_{1}=6.40 m/s

a=0

d

_{x}= ?

d

_{y}= 30.0m

t= ?

Am I on the right track?

I know you guys want me to try to solve the problem, but I've gotten a headache thinking about it
