Consider two cars A and B, initially side by side and both at rest. at t=0 car A begins to accelerate at a constant rate Aa, which continues for a a time Ta Until it reaches a speed Va, after which time it continues traveling at the constant speed Va. At the moment Car A reaches its cruising speed Va, car B takes off after Car A, accelerating at a constant rate Ab. at T=t* car B passes Car A.

C.) Determine the amount of time, (Delta)t, elapsed from the moment car B begins to accelerate to the moment it passes car A. What is the velocity of car B at the moment it passes car A? Note: You may use dimensional analysis to check your answers.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

On a single graph i drew a Position Time Graph ... and Also i sketched a Speed-Time Graph... Me and my Roommates Have attempted to solve this problem for many hours... What can i do with the Graphs?
