The driver of a pink Cadillac traveling at a constant 60 mi/h is being chased by the law. The police car is 20 m behind the perpetrator when it too reaches 60 mi/h, and at that moment the officer floors the gas pedal. If her car roars up to the rear of the Caddilac 2.0 s later, what was her acceleration, assuming it to be constant.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can you help me with this problem?

I have the answer and the solution, after reading that I thought understood it. But when started to solve the next problem, exactly the same type, I couldn't do anything.

Please help me understand this type of problems.

Thanks
