- Homework Statement
- An object starts from rest at the origin at time t = −T and accelerates with constant acceleration a.

A second object starts from rest at the origin at time t = 0 and accelerates with the same a.

How far apart are they at time t? Explain the meaning of the two terms in your answer, both

physically in words and also with regard to the v vs t plots

- Relevant Equations
- Equations of motion.

From my understanding the the distance of the two at time t would be 0. Because at the statement it is said that both objects start at the origin. To me the two expressions mean the same if both objects start at the origin I don't see how it matters what value is assigned to t.
