A mosquito flies toward you with a velocity of 2.2 km/h (E). If you are travelling toward the mosquito with a speed of 1.9 m/s, and a distance of 21.0 m separates you and the mosquito initially:

A) What will your displacement be when you hit the mosquito? (7)

B) How long will it take you to reach the mosquito? (2)

*I checked my answers with the check digits (7) and (2) and it did not equal 5.

2. Relevant equations

Dyou : Dyou(initial) + Vyou(initial)t + (1/2)(ayou^2)(t^2)

Dmos : Dmos(initial) + Vmos(initial)t + (1/2)(amos^2)(t^2)

3. The attempt at a solution
