ok, the question is like this, you are in a car stopped at a red light. the light goes green adn a car passes you by going 11.om/s E. if you accelerate at 4.0m/s^2 to a maximum speed of 15m/s. How long will it take for you to catch up.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so i know the distance between them is the same.

i tried to use V*T=1/2*A*T^2 but since the t is squared i don' know what to do with it. can anyone help ?thx
