## Homework Statement

A huge tractor and a Tesla full of school children come driving along a winding

mountain road, in opposite directions. The tractor has a speed of

40.0km/h and the car zooms along with 80.0km/h. The Tesla suddenly comes around a

corner, sees the tractor, and they both immediately start braking, both with

constant accelerations of 5.00m/s^2 (opposite to their directions of motion).

a) If the initial distance between the two is 60.0m, do they hit each other? If

so, where, and with what relative speed on impact? If not, what is the distance

between the two when they both stop?

## Homework Equations

x(t)= -a/2*t

^{2}+ v*t + x

Dont know how to find the positional equations of the two vehicles and then solve for t to find where they crash.
