An automobile speeding at 28.33 m/s passes a stationary police cruiser. The police officer starts to move her cruiser in persuit 11.00s after the automobile passes. She accelerated uniformly to 34.72 m/s in 11s and then continues at uniform speed until she catches the speeder.
How long does the police cruiser take to catch the speeder? How far from the initial position is the speeder caught?
(I don't know!!!)
The Attempt at a Solution
I got that the speeder is 311.3 m ahead of the cruiser when the cruiser starts. I also got that the cruisers acceleration is 3.16m/s^2. I have also figured that when the cruiser gets to the uniform speed of 34.72 m/s, the speeder is 431.4 m ahead of the cruiser.
I cannot figure out how to find out where and when they meet.
