1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A state trooper sets up a radar trap. A speeder passes the trooper and continues going at a constant speed of 40 m/s. The instant the speeder passes the trooper, the trooper accelerates at 5.0 m/s/s for 10 seconds and then continues at a constant speed. How far will the trooper travel before she catches up to the speeder? 2. Relevant equations d=v1t+1/2at^2 d=1/2at^2 3. The attempt at a solution I figured out the distance traveled for the first ten seconds by the police man to be 250 meters and his final velocity being 50 m/s. The speeder's distance in 10 seconds is 400 meters. Now I do not know how to find the distance that it takes for the cop to catch the speeder.
