1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly at 3.0 m/s^2 a second car starts from rest 6 seconds later at the same point and accelerates uniformly at 5 m/s^2. How long does it take the second car to overtake the first car. 2. Relevant equations d=vit+(1/2)at^2 I know that there might be a quadratic equation to solve for x. 3. The attempt at a solution I came across this question at this website: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...6cAp8NojzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20090917181717AAiO4kQ and I have been stuck on it for about 20 minutes. Again this is not my homework, but I do need help.
