1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data At the instant the traffic light turns green, a car starts with a constant acceleration of 5.00 ft/s^2. At the same instant a truck, traveling with a constant speed of 70.0 ft/s, overtakes and passes the car. How far from the starting point (in feet) will the car overtake the truck? 2. Relevant equations Well I know the 4 kinematic equations for motion with constant acceleration. I know final velocity of the truck=final velocity of the car. 3. The attempt at a solution To find the time it took for the car to catch the truck i divided 70ft/s by 5.0ft/s^2=14.0s t=14 Xi=0 Vi=0 a=5.0ft/s^2 Ive got the answers 490ft, 1015ft, 980 ft which are all incorrect. Am I using the wrong value for something here? I appreciate any help.
