Homework Help: Police Chase problem

  1. Sep 3, 2009 #1
    I do not understand this problem but I think there is a simple solution I am just not getting at the moment i would appreciate any help available

    A car traveling at a constant speed of 141 km/hr passes a trooper hidden behind a billboard. One second after the speeding car passes the billboard, the trooper sets in a chase after the car with a constant acceleration of 4.6 m/s2. How far does the trooper travel before he overtakes the speeding car?
