Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Sunday, January 13, 2008 at 12:56pm.

A car traveling at a constant speed of 125 km/hr passes a trooper hidden behind a billboard. One second after the speeding car passes the billboard, the trooper sets in a chase after the car with a constant acceleration of 2.7 m/s^2. How far does the trooper travel before he overtakes the speeding car?

I'm pretty sure that I need to solve for time using d = 1/2at^2, but the "one second after" part of this problem throws me off.
