## Homework Statement

1) Runner A is initially 4.0 mi west of a flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 6.0 mi/h due east. Runner B is initially 3.0 mi east of the flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 5.0 mi/h due west. How far are the runners from the flagpole when they meet?

2) A train is traveling down a straight track at 20 m/s when the engineer applies the brakes, resulting in an acceleration of -1.0 m/s^2 as long as the train is in motion. How far does the train move during a 40 s time interval starting at the instant the brakes are applied?

## Homework Equations

1) V=Vi + at

2) x=Vit + 1/2at^2

3) V^2=Vi^2 + 2ax

4) a=V/t

5) v=x/t
