## Homework Statement

A car accelerates steadily from 0 ms^-1 to 20 ms^-1 in a distance d and time t. Another car takes a time 2t to accelerate steadily from stationary to the same final velocity. What distance does the car travel during the new acceleration?

## Homework Equations

So Speed x Time = Distance

And then there are the non-linear acceleration ones but I'm not sure if they are needed

## The Attempt at a Solution

Okay so intuitively I think that because it's taken double the time it has travelled double the distance, because if the time is 2t then to get the same speed we need 2d, but I don't think the question says that both cars travel at constant acceleration (i.e the same) so it could be that one accelerates at a greater rate than the other or something? What do you think of the wording?
