A car traveling @ 120 km/h passes by a parked police car. If it takes 5 seconds to start the police car, which then accelerates @ 3 m/s^2 to a maximum speed of 150 km/h, how far does the police car travel in overtaking the speeding car, which maintains a speed of 120 km/h?
The 5 seconds is giving me trouble... I assume they will have equal distance (change in X) when the police car overtakes the speeding car, so I set them equal to each other and solved for time...I am stumped.
