(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two cars, P and Q, are 1400m apart.

P is travelling at 15 ms^{-1}, Q is accelerating from rest at 5.0 ms^{-2}

They are travelling opposite direction(i.e. they are facing each other), what is the time taken for them to meet?

Also, what is the distance travelled by each car before meeting each other?

2. Relevant equations

a = [tex]\frac{v-u}{t}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I got a = 5t, but it did not seem to help much...

Do I have to draw a graph for this question?
