On its way to Peace River, Alberta, a car enters a passing zone on the highway. The car is 25.0 m behind a truck and both vehicles are travelling at 41.0 m/s. The car accelerates uniformly to overtake the truck and after the car has travelled 280m, it is 25.0 m ahead of the truck, which has continued to travel at 41 m/s. How much time elapses between when the car begins to accelerate and when the car is 25.0 m ahead of the truck?
