1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Making the light. While traveling in your car at a constant 12 m/s, you notice a traffic light 44 m in front of you turn yellow. You know that the light will turn red in 3.0 seconds, and that you can speed up at a rate of 6.0 m/s/s. You’re also aware that it takes you 1.0 second to actually step on the gas and begin speeding up at that rate. Will you make it through the light before it turns red? 2. Relevant equations xf=xi+Vi(delta T)+(.5)a(Delta T)^2 3. The attempt at a solution In the one second delay because of reaction time the car travels 12 meters corresponding to the 12m/s velocity so xi=12m xf=12m + (12m/s)(2s) + (.5)(6m/s/s)(2^2) xf=36m 36m<44m to the light so the car will not make the light!
