1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data How far has the motorcycle traveled, when it catches the ferarri? A ferrari speeding at a constant 35m/s passes a police officer at rest. 2.0 s later, the officer accelerates in pursuit at 6.5 m/s^2. How far has the motorcycle traveled, when it catches the ferarri? I know the d=vt for the ferarri and d=1/2at^2 for the police, but what is throwing me off is the 2.0 seconds later part. Help please! 2. Relevant equations d=vt for the ferarri d=1/2at2 for the police 3. The attempt at a solution I set vt=1/2at2 solved for t and got t=2v/a=12.769 I thought I could just add the two seconds to it, but that is wrong..
