## Homework Statement

a car is behind a truck going 25m/s on the highway. the car's river looks for a chance to pass, guessing that his car can accelerate at 1.0m/s^2. he gauges that he has to cover the 20 meters length of the truck 10 meters clear room at the rear of the truck and 10 meters more at the front of it. in the oncoming lane, he sees a car approaching, probably also traveling at 25m/s. he estimates that the car is about 400m away

## Homework Equations

v^2=Vo^2+2ax

v=Vo+at

d=rt

## The Attempt at a Solution

v^2=(2)(1)(40) V=8.9

8.9+25=33.9m/s

1149.2=625+2(1)(x) x=262.1m

it takes car one 262.1meters to pass the truck and this process takes 8.9 seconds

d=rt

d=(8.9sec)(25m/s) d=222.5m

400 - 262.1 ≠ 222.5

400 - 262.1 =137.9

final answer = no

is there anything wrong here?
