**[SOLVED] Projectile Motion problem. very lost.**

## Homework Statement

A person is traveling in an accelerating car. He throws a ball in the direction the car is acceleration with a velocity of vo. In the final condition, he catches the ball. Note the car begins accelerating after the ball is thrown.

What is the time the ball is in the air in terms of vox and a?

**2. Equations**

Projectile motion ones?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, the ball and the person have the same a. Also, x (the distance traveled) and t (time) are the same.

I have no idea how to setup this up or what approach to use.

F=ma doesn't really help, it just comes down to a=-g.

TIA

I attached a pic. in case my description doesn't help
