How to find the time

  1. Sep 15, 2005 #1
    A sports car that can accelerate at the rate pf 5.7 m/s^2 drag races agains a speedster that can accelerate at the rate of 4.53 m/s^2. the speedster gets a 1.41second head start.

    Sports car acceleration:5.7 m/s^2

    speedsters acceleration:4.53 m/s^2

    how do i find the time it takes for the sports car to overtake the speedster?
