## Homework Statement

Heather in her Corvette accelerates at the rate of 3i -2j (m/s^2) while Jill accelerates at 1i+3j (m/s^2). They both start from rest at the origin of an xy coordinate system. After 5 seconds A. what is Heather's speed with respect to Jill. B. How far apart are they? C. what is Heather's acceleration relative to Jill?

## Homework Equations

unit Vector subtraction

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know the acceleration is simply subtracting Jill from heather. I believe the speed is multiplying both of them by 5 then subtracting jill from heather. How do you determine the distance? Or would the distance be how I am doing speed?
